Huntingdon BRJ runners produced impressive performances at two races last Sunday.

David Hudson was runner-up in the delayed St Valentine's 30k in Stamford - an event postponed by a week due to bad weather.

Hudson clocked 1:43.54 in windy conditions to finish just over two minutes behind winner William Strangeway from Lincoln Wellington AC.

David Newton claimed age-group honours in the MV70 section with a fine 2:31.12 performance.

Paul Mitton knocked 10 minutes off his personal best for the distance when sneaking into the top 100 in 2:17.48, while Peter Newham (2:23.15) and Sue Yendley (3:06.13) also completed the race.
