In the half marathon, Sean Jermy enjoyed an excellent run, finishing in 47th position in a great time of 1-36:46. This result shows that his training for a mid-September marathon is going well.

Dave Drewitt recorded 2-01:57 in the windy conditions. There were 191 finishers in this popular event.

Diane Clark and friends took part in the 60-mile coastal bike ride for the Anthony Nolan Appeal.
