The route she took on starts out on the cobbles, heading through the throng of supporters and then snaking through rural Yorkshire.

The second half of the race was characterised by two 'out-and-back' sections, with the first of these u-turns set at a spectacular site in Stamford Bridge.

The second felt almost never-ending, but some strong support from the crowd made Jayne's task a little easier.

After that, it was a return to suburbia as she headed back towards the university.

Elsewhere, just three weeks after running the London Marathon, Tracey Else took part in the Virtual Barnstaple Half Marathon.

She was a little nervous about how her legs would hold up, but she battled through and finished in 2:07:48.

To make this even more special, her medal was designed by Tim Marotto - her dear fiend's late grandson.

Craig Freestone also took part in the event, and included the half marathon in his 17-mile run.

He excelled with a 1:53:14 finish.

Three Counties members also continued to impress at parkruns throughout the county.

Sarah Melton-Whitelam, Matt Hunter and Steve Whitelam ran in King's Lynn, while Debbie Agger took part at Sandringham.

There were also participants at Gorleston Cliffs, March, Holkham, Hunstanton and Storey Fields.
