Nicole Roberts and Stuart Nelson both showed excellent form to record wins in this year’s Wellingborough five-mile race.

The former, who less than 24 hours earlier had a set new personal best of 6.48.44 when finishing second for her club Birchfield Harriers in the 2000m steeplechase at the UK women’s league in Swansea, romped home an emphatic winner of the ladies race.

Nelson had a much tougher time in the men’s race and was part of a leading trio along with Coventry Godiva’s Emerson Combstock and Mark Ryall of Victoria Park Harriers, who led the field at the two mile mark.
