More than 30 members of a Suffolk running club are taking part in marathons across the world this year.

From Blackpool to Manchester, and Florida to Paris, as well as Sunday’s London Marathon and races closer to home in Bungay and Halstead, runners from Stowmarket Striders have been preparing to, or already have, made their way around 26.2-mile courses.

Members of the running club are also running in the Brighton and Edinburgh races.

Dale Mandell, from the club, said a record number of Striders were running marathons this year.
