Barking Road Runners competed in a new virtual event this week which was to see how far members could run in 30 minutes, following the success of the hour challenge.

In the case of Martin Page it was a very impressive 4.54 miles - not bad for a 60+ veteran according to the club. 

Belinda Riches and Ron Vialls continued their rivalry with Belinda edging out Ron this time round with 3.96 miles to Ron’s 3.91 miles.
