“It was a huge honour to hand out medals at the finish line.

“Covered by the brilliant Mid Sussex Radio team. Massive congratulations to all who competed in this really tough weekend and particularly the day 3 runners yesterday who did the magic 26.2 miles in our 3 fabulous towns of East Grinstead, Haywards Heath, and Burgess Hill over the last 3 days.

“Much kudos to Simon and all the Nice Work events team who have been part of this since day 1.

“As the founder of this race, our local London 2012 legacy event, I love playing my part annually and seeing the satisfaction for the runners at the end is tremendous to see.
