A group of Hunts AC runners passed a test of endurance with flying colours last weekend.

The quintet of Kelly Crawford, Caroline Archer, Andy Richardson, Steve Church and Shane Hunt clocked up 165 miles to triumph in the gruelling Suffolk Trail Running Festival 24-hour event.

They completed 33 laps of the five-mile course during a demanding day with Crawford the most prolific team member as she covered 40 miles.

Not only did they win their mixed category, the Hunts AC runners also beat the best all-mate team.
