Nicole Smith travelled to Valencia, Spain over the weekend to compete in Sunday’s Marathon.

The popular Spanish city marathon attracts a large competitive field with an equally large number of supporters along the flat 26.2 mile course.

Nicole was able to benefit from slightly cooler Spanish temperatures and after having to dig deep in the final 6 miles was delighted to shave 5 minutes off of her marathon PB finishing in a time of 4:01:58.

John Warne competed in Sunday’s Chelmsford 10k race. Missing his PB by only a few seconds to finish in 50:45.
