The final race of Fenland Running Club's Marathon programme proved particularly fruitful for two local runners.

Ellen Connolly and Carol Bowett both ended their spring schedule by taking part in the Halstead and Essex Marathon last Sunday, and Ellen finished in style by recording a new personal best time of 3:49:37.

Carol finished the race – her first 26.2 miles – in 4:30:50.

Also in action were Tim Chapman and Gilly Anderson.

The duo tackled the Sleaford Striders Half Marathon, recording times of 1:31:45 and 2:19:56 – a new personal best.
