It was another busy weekend for the Falkland Trail Runners who were out and about at a variety of events.

Alison Marven was a lone skwerl in the Troon 10k which she completed in 55m 01s.

Alan and Sandra Gardiner took part in both the Monikie 5k and 10k races.

The 5k saw Alan finish in 24m 54s to place 25th with Sandra not far behind in 67th in 30m 37.

It was another busy few days for veteran Bill Duff, in midweek in very wet conditions he contested the Dumyat Hill Race along with fellow skwerl Russ Valentine, the latter crossed the finish line in 61m 10s with Bill just behind in 62 minuites exactly.

Bill then headed south where on Saturday along with his good lady Anette they took part in the Run for the 96 from Anfield Stadium.

The following day he collected another category prize when he was the leading over-70 in the Durham Trail Race.

Andy Cameron completed the Cateran 55 mile Ultra Race which starts and finishes at the Gulabin Lodge in Spittal of Glenshee.

Taking on a more gruelling challenge was Daniel Kershaw. On Sunday morning he set out on the Brathey 10 in the Lake Didtrict.

Competitors have to run 10 marathons in 10 days. The daily route is a 26.2 mile anti-clockwise circuit of Lake Windermere taking in Hawkshead, Newby Bridge, Bowness on Furness and Ambleside.

Daniel completed the opening day marathon in 3 hours 59 minutes 13 seconds.
