Late wins from Steve Plumb, Gerald Collins and Walden's own Graham Goodman proved too little too late but Goodman and the Essex players did say the changes to bunkers on Saffron Walden Golf Club's Windmill Hill course have "enhanced the quality".

Former club champion of Saffron Striders, Tony Bacon, was back in action after the lockdown and in sizzling form too.

Now part of Haverhill Running Club, he was at the Olympic Park velodrome in an event organised by RunThrough.

A number of different distances were on offer from 5k and 10k through to both half and full marathon but Bacon opted for the 10-mile event.

It proved a good choice too as he came home 13th overall and fourth in his age group in a time of one hour five minutes 43 seconds.
