The prolific Maureen Roberts followed, continuing her great form with 63:19, closely followed by Diane Chambers, who was competing for the first time after injury with a time of 78:40.

Further afield saw the storming Steve Hughes competing at the Hull Marathon, finishing in a lightning fast time of 3 hours 28 minutes, taking the win in the wheelchair event.
