The group ran from their base at the May & Bakers Social Club to Reede Road, across Heathway and back down Oxlow Lane to cover 4.5 miles.

And they engaged with members of the local community along the way, raising nearly £100 for Saint Francis Hospice before enjoying mince pies and other favourites.

Andy Beazeley broke new ground as he made his debut over 26.2 miles in the Ramsgate Coastal Marathon and clocked 4:58.51.

Others took on various parkruns, with Paul Suett (20.09) fastest at Brentwood.
