The Three Counties Running Club member trained for a marathon a few years ago, but pulled out and took a year off the track.

After booking the Peterborough half-marathon, Covid-19 struck and the event was cancelled, but on Sunday, she covered the 26.2-mile distance with a little help from her friends.

Tracy, joined at different stages by teammates, finished the route in 4:43:55.

Matt Hunter also took on his own challenge part way through Tracy’s run by completing 27.8 miles in a time of 5:16:48.
