Huntingdon BRJ man David Hudson was runner-up in the big Folksworth 15 last Sunday.

Hudson produced a strong defence of his title after winning the 15-mile test, over a hilly course, the previous year.

This time around he completed in a time of 1:20.03 to come home second out of more than 450 runners - more than two-and-a-half minutes behind winner Aaron Scott.

Husband and wife, David and Annette Newton, added more trophies to their vast collection with age-group honours.

David took the MV70 spoils in 1:56.05 with Annette the first lady home in the FV65 bracket in 2:06.02.
