Last weekend a quartet of Stilton Striders travelled to Derbyshire to tackle the Windgatherer Fell Race.

Starting in Buxton, the tough 13.5-mile course included more than 2,500ft of ascent and went through part of the Peak District.

The race is the ninth and penultimate leg of the Accelerate Gritstone series of fell races held in the area.

First back for the Melton running club was Paul Geeson in 2hr 12min 57secs, followed close behind by Michael Atton in 2.14.09.

Katie Hateley was next Strider across the line in 2.21.53 followed by John Houghton (2.42.18).
