The midhurst Milers member turned up at Chichester hoping for a top-five finish but not expecting to win, but she came in just past the 1hr 30 mark to claim the honours.

Afterwards she said she was delighted with a time that was not far off her best for a flat-route half marathon, which the Chi course is certainly not.
