AIRMEN from the region took part in a round-the-clock run to raise funds for charity.

A team from 609 (West Riding) Squadron Royal Auxiliary Air Force, based at RAF Leeming, ran through the night to raise more than £1,200 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The 24-hour Exercise Long Run was organised by Senior Aircraftsman Dave Lacy.

Starting at midnight, 11 runners took turns to run a mile before handing over to the next person, relay style.

The team clocked more than 370 miles and one runner, SAC Peter Hyde, covered 60 miles.

Flight Sergeant Vic Rose said: "It was a great way to raise some money for a worthy charity. By working as a team, the group proved their levels of fitness are of the highest standard."
