Rebecca Still donned her Strider vest to take on her third marathon distance in a month on Saturday, 24 November at the Saxon Vikings and Norman’s marathon challenge in Samphire Hoe.
The event was a mix of on and off roads and took on 100ft of elevation on each lap with a long stretch along the seafront with a strong headwind.
The endurance specialist has had some credible top 10 finishes recently, but this was to be her best event of the season and she romped round the 26.2-mile course to take the overall ladies win in 4hrs 24mins 25secs.
On Saturday, 24 November Racheal Noble took park in the VeloPark 10km event in Stratford.
