Phillip led the threesome home, with a tidy 48-19, while Jane was placed second in her category in 49-37. Lucy came in just over the hour in a field of 592 finishers.

At Ferry Meadows in Peterborough on New Year’s Eve, Phillip ran his second Sublime race in three days and the fatigue may have shown; however, his time slipped by only a couple of minutes. Ahead of him was Lewis Saunders, whose 37-50 placed him 22nd in a very strong field.

Chasing behind them were Andy Beveridge in 49-16 and Stacie Youngs 55-31. Completing the team were Ian King in 56-45 and veteran Roger Williams in a huge field of 764 finishers.
