She also finished first of 20 in her FV55 category and was the 38th female to cross the line out of 252.l

Meanwhile, for the men, Adam Maltpress (43:59) was first home, finishing seventh of 58 in his MV40 age group and 27th of 440 runners overall.

Other Joggers to finish were Andrew Taylor (46:45), Sianie Painter (58:48), Sarah Kinston (64:01) and Orla Dockery (65:20).

Also on Sunday – at the Beyton School Campus near Bury St Edmunds – it was the Tarpley 10 and 20 mile events.

Clive Purbrook completed the 10-mile race in 1:24:25, not far from his best time earlier this year, while Caroline McIntosh (3:59:28) did well to duck under four hours in her first competitive 20-mile race. Paul Dockerill (2:33:11) and Chris Aylmer (3:28:45) also competed in the 20 for the second time.
