Irlam finished 1,009th in a time of 1hr 39min 20sec and was sixth in her age category. The marathon started in ideal conditions but some runners received a drenching some three hours into the race. Martin Jennings finished first for Fenland before the rain came down in a big personal best time of 3hr 6min 30sec. Leanne Rickett also ran a PB finishing in 3hr 52min 11sec.Tracy Veenendaal had a great race and also finished with a PB in a time of 4hr 32min 52sec. Sadly, Julie Garner suffered from 20 miles on and having met all her targets previously she eventually came home in 5hr 22min 9sec.
