Three Counties Running Club ditched lycra and trainers for heels and suits as they rounded off a busy year of action at their annual awards night on Friday.
Members celebrated team and individual success for TCRC in a year where the club were represented at events including the summer relay, Santa run and were crowned joint winners of the Living Sport community club of the year award.
There were 31 awards won at the event, with Matt Hunter winning the draw for a London Marathon place.
Earlier that week, TCRC members presented a cheque for £207 to the Royal British Legion after fundraising through the club's GM10k event.
