He secured an excellent fourth place among around 4,000 finishers in the half-marathon, clocking a time of 73.36 minutes - well within sight of rivals in second and third spots.

In the full marathon over 26 miles, Angus Paton notched one of the few personal best performances of the day with a solid 3:36.52 on an increasingly sunny day that became uncomfortably warm for distance running towards the end.

Cooler conditions prevailed at the Yorkshire Marathon where Linda Robson was delighted to beat her self-imposed target of four and a half hours when she posted a satisfying 4:23.25. Jef Hutchby made it to the finish line despite a deteriorating leg injury to clock 6:30.40.

Meanwhile, the Chester metric marathon over 26kms (approx 16 miles) saw Sally Greenslade take a well-earned first place in her age category with 2:07.27 while in the Royal Parks half-marathon at London’s Hyde Park, Nick Hudson continued his return with 1:42.28.
