Volunteer Black Dogs also manned the traditional BBDRC changeover point at Earsham until 2am on Sunday morning and provided cycle accompaniment for each leg of the relay.

The team completed the run around the county’s perimeter in a total time of 28 hours, 41 minutes, 35 seconds with the club picking up a glass trophy for participating in the race for 10 years.

Black Dog Chris Chorley received a medal to mark his own 10th appearance in the relay.

Meanwhile, in London, Lily Capps-Jenner, who only joined the club as a novice in April, ran her first half marathon at Kew Gardens (Sunday, September 17) in an impressive two hours and 17 minutes.
