Despite the cold winter conditions, the hardier members of the Beach Runners have been putting in some impressive performances.

At the Horsford January cross-country meeting Paul Muffett (pictured) produced an astonishing run to win his age group by more than 10 minutes with a time of 44:17.

Just five seconds behind was the Beach Runners' rising duathlon star, Will Dorsett, who took fourth place in the Senior Men's section with Darren Neale just one place back.

Ryan Callaby was a creditable 12th with Terry Quigley having a very steady run to take first place in the 60+ category. Meanwhile, the fast improving Claire Donovan ran a brilliant time of 36:06 to win the Senior Ladies' race.
