Members of BRJ Run and Tri were up before the lark to celebrate the longest day. Running before sunrise at just after four in the morning, 25 members ran around Portholme water meadow as the sun rose over the river Ouse.

BRJ Run and Tri Club Captain Alan Hannibal has won the Living Sport Services to Sport Award for his long service to our club, and his continuing support of all of its members.
