ENERGETIC members of Malvern Buzzards Running Club have been taking on an ultramarathon to celebrate the group’s fourth birthday.

Club captain Lily Price led a group of nine in the Pen Y Ghent 50km event in the Yorkshire Dales on Saturday.

It was a very challenging course with 4,600ft of ascent, including a climb up Pen Y Ghent.

The weather was misty and foggy at the start of the race, but the team did manage to get a glimpse of the sun revealing some stunning views over the Yorkshire Dales.

Having nine members present meant that Malvern Buzzards was the best-represented running club at the event.

Sarah Armstrong was the first female in 5hrs 59mins with with team mates, Sam Burnage, Simeon Foreman and Steve Beldon finishing joint 14th place overall.

Alison Webb, Megan James, Nicola Brighton and Kate Dolphin finished in 7hrs with captain Lily setting a new 50k personal best in 7hrs 35mins.
