Falkland Trail Runner Daniel Kershaw reached an impressive milestone last weekend when he completed his 100th marathon.

The 42-year-old, from Bankfoot, began running nearly a decade ago with the simple aim of improving his fitness and leading a healthier lifestyle but on Saturday he completed a century of marathons after finishing at Strathearn in four hours, seven minutes and a second.

He was just one of a number of Falkand Trail Runners in action last weekend:
