Blasts from the past were the order of the day at this year’s Windsor Half Marathon as a host of previous medal winners returned to take top spots on the podium.
The event, which is now in its 33rd year, saw just under 4,000 runners assemble at the start-line at Windsor Great Park yesterday (Sunday) to take on the 13.1 mile challenge.
First to complete the circuit was Kojo Kyreme, who romped home in 1.07.50, smashing the time of 1.14.21 he had set last year to clinch second place.
He was closely followed by Tony Lambert, in 1.12.08, and then Alexander Millar who finished in third – despite recording a faster time than the one he had set in 2013 to win the race.
For the women, Samantha Amend made a triumphant return to take first place, although her time of 1.22.27 wasn’t quite enough to beat last year’s effort.
Lesley Locks and Hannah Worthington took second and third with 1.23.09 and 1.24.37 respectively.
As well as the thousands of runners who took on the half marathon, which included BBC Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans, there were also 59 youngsters aged five to nine who entered the Sprite Sprint and a further 25 who ran in the 2.5 mile Glynn Shefford Memorial Run.
