There were large events happening in all of the home countries of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. From results already in, the biggest races this weekend were:

Admiral Swansea Bay 10K (Wales) - 3,244 *Provisional

Deep River Rock Belfast City Half Marathon (Northern Ireland) - 2,724

Scottish Half Marathon (East Lothian, Scotland) - 2,685 *Awaiting usable copy

Worcester 10K (England) - 2,273

English Half Marathon (Warrington, England)  - 2,182

Reigate Half Marathon (England) -  1,816 *Awaiting usable copy

With mild, late summer weather dominating the country, there were many personal best times and reduced handicap scores.

The Admiral Swansea Bay 10k was won in the super-quick time of 29:05 by Josphat Kemi and Katrina Wootton (handicap -1.4) stormed home in 32:54 to cross the line as first female.

Meanwhile, across the Irish Sea, the Deep River Rock Belfast Half Marathon, was won by Freddie Sittuck in 67:50 and Laura Graham (handicap 0.6) took 0.1 from her handicap score when she completed the course in 78:23.

First across the finish line, at Musselburgh Racecourse, in the Scottish Half Marathon, was Scott Stirling (handicap -3.6) who ran the course in 31:19. Meanwhile, Dianne Lauder (handicap 2.6) took four minutes off the women's course record with her time of 80:14.

The third running of the Worcester 10k was its biggest and best yet with 2,273 finishing the race. Graham Rush (handicap -4.8) won the race by more than three minutes in 30:23 and Kate Hulls (handicap -0.5) finished, impressively, third overall and first female in 33:42. Jenny Meadows (handicap -2.0) was second woman and 26th overall in 36:37. Jenny currently sits high up in 10th on the National Ladder due to her impressive performances on the track and this was a rare outing for her racing over more than 800m.

Did you race in one of these or any other event this weekend? By training and racing regularly your runbritain profile will maintain a healthy score and if you plan to peak for a target race, we hope you will improve it by a significant amount and make your way up the National Ladder. Don't forget that the National Ladder not only ranks you in the UK overall but by gender, age and postcode too.
