ANDY VERNON (clocking 63.32 mins) won the Great Birmingham Run half marathon with club mate Chris Thompson in a second place (63.54 mins) to deny him back-to-back wins.
It was an Aldershot Farnham and District AC one-two finish, with Belgian Koen Naert finished third in 64.24 mins.
Kenyan born Dutchwoman Elizeba Cherono took the victory in the women’s race, easing home in 73.42 to finish more than a minute ahead of Romania’s Madelina Florea who clocked 74.45 and Briton Lauden Deadman in 74.54.
Conditions were testing early on in the half marathon before the sun eventually came out for the majority of the club runners in the mass participation event which saw more than 16,000 take part.
Next year’s entry list is already open which is to coincide with Birmingham International Marathon.
