* Striders mother and daughter Julie Bass and Emma Hope travelled to North Yorkshire to walk the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

They aimed to walk up Ingleborough (723m), Pen-Y-Gent (694m) and Whernside (736m), a total distance of 24 miles in 12 hours.

After a 6.15am start, the first two summits were reached in heavy mist, but by the time the summit of Whernside was reached the sun was out.

A steep scramble to the finish was rewarded with a finish time of 9hr 22mins.

Two other Melton athletes Joanne Shore and Linda McInerney, of Rutland Running Club, also completed the walk in just over nine hours.
