In total 26 members from Lindsey Fitness Running Club took part in the Running Festival on April 15.

Lindsey Peters, who runs the club, and 10 of her members all completed the 26.2 mile event in near perfect weather conditions.

First to finish was Vicki Rolston completing her third marathon in 4 hours 18 minutes - a personal best, followed by first timer Laura Meaker in 4 hours 32 minutes.

The festival also incorporates a 10km event which the other 16 members took part in.

Notably Miranda Trenchard, 68, was the 8th fastest in her age group.

Lindsey said: “This was our biggest presence at a national event by far and I couldn’t be prouder and more thrilled for all our members who have trained hard through the winter to achieve such huge success.”
