After dancing into the early hours at their annual awards dinner and dance, there were no lie ins for the Grange Farm and Dunmow Runners (GFDR) who took part in the High Easter 10km road race on Sunday morning.
The event was organised by GFDR member Alistair Brown to raise money towards the maintenance of High Easter village church.
The flat course took runners along quiet country lanes to the north of the village.
Of the 186 competitors who took part, Gavin Allen of Springfield Striders was fastest in 34 minutes 30 seconds.
James Bosher led home the GFDR team, finishing fourth in 36:10. In a race to the line, Dan Reynolds in 39:10 just beat Matt Webster (39:11) and Paul McKenna (39:16). Ashwin Shah finished in 40:14, followed by Sean Henderson (42:23), Ian Lawson (43:28), Martin Jackson (45:05), Jason Bepey (45:15), David Kelsey (46:34) and Colin Jackson (48:11). Hayley Morley was the fastest GFDR woman in 51:14, ahead of Debbie Stares (55:56) and Henrietta Butcher (59:53). Brady Ramsay (1:01:55) finished just ahead of Rosalind McKenna (1:01:56) and Glenda Jackson (1:02:06).
