North Herts Road Runners’ outstanding veteran 50+ athlete Andrew Leach showed younger runners a clean pair of heels on Sunday as he sped round the Love Welwyn 10K to win the race outright.

Team-mate Steve Tracy, currently training for a spring a marathon, finished in 40 minutes 39 seconds while Nicky Kemp was delighted to clock her fastest time for a couple of years with 48:58.

Another V50 in sparkling form was Nick Malpeli, whose 1:21:30 clocked at the Wokingham Half Marathon saw him place ninth in the national rankings.

Linda Aird took on the challenge of the Harrow Hill 10K and won her age group in 54:04.

Several members took part in parkruns on Saturday with Chris Priestley running 27:34 in the heat in Hobart, Tasmania.
