Fenland Running Club star Jane Greenwood continued her excellent recent form by smashing another personal best at the Brighton Marathon last weekend.

Jane finished the gruelling 26.2-mile challenge in 4:24:27 – a time that saw her cross the line in 5,431st out of a huge field of 20,604 finishers.

But, more significantly, her impressive time saw her finish in sixth out of 72 ladies in the FV60 age group.

Sarah Rippon was also in action at the coast, but succumbed to the heat and missed out on a personal best time with 5:14:50.

Elsewhere, Sarah Gauvin finished the Norwich Half Marathon in 1:47:54. That time was enough to give her a fourth-place finish in the LV45 age category.
