The spring marathon and half marathon season kicked off with an impressive first place for St Albans Striders’ Jake James at the Richmond Park Trail Half Marathon.

Johanna Houlahan ran the Paris Marathon, beating her time from last year, and said she loved the "crazy French crowds but it wouldn’t be Paris without them".

Phillip Evans and Edward Bailey both ran PBs at the Brighton Marathon while Ivan Ghouse took part in both the Prague Half Marathon and the London Landmarks Half.

He was joined in London by Clare Watkins.

Elsewhere, Jenna Scott ran in the Southampton Marathon and Bex Hodgson-Jones ran in the Berlin Half.
