Reid Continues Marathon Build Up With 20 Mile Win

Lucy Reid continued her build up towards this year's London Marathon with an excellent performance over twenty miles on Sunday.

Reid was representing Kent in an Inter Counties 20 mile road championship that featured eight county teams and started at Rochford, near Southend. Finishing 27th overall she ran 1:59.13 to win the women's race by several minutes, dipping under the two hours barrier despite the extremely windy conditions.

Reid is targeting her marathon debut at this year's London event, which takes place on 28th April and aims to take in a few more road races before then as part of her preparation.

Also producing a winning road race performance on Sunday was Ben Cole, who won the Eastbourne Half Marathon in 74:42, having a gap of almost four minutes to the runner-up.
