And Hayden was part of a team which included GCR’s Rebecca Barden and St Albans Striders duo Fleur Harvey-Keenan and Caroline Bailes that completed an impressive 21 laps to be the fastest women’s team and the fourth fastest team of four.

Hayden herself ran a 26-minute first lap to claim the fastest female lap prize.

She said: “I had never done the St Albans Stampede before but I was so impressed. Everyone was cheering each other on no matter what team or club they were from.”
