Ian Fisher 36:45
Kate Nelson 46:43
The Kilburn Feast 7 in North Yorkshire on July 9 saw almost 300 runners tackle a testing undulating course in near-perfect conditions.
To distract runners from the uphill sections, the race organisers included some of the area's most impressive historical buildings on the route. The medieval Shandy Hall, where the local parson Laurence Sterne wrote Tristram Shandy in the 1760s, caught the eye of literature lovers, while the ruins of Byland Abbey offered a more divine experience.
First back to the finish at the 12th century Forrester's Arms was Ian Fisher in 36:45. Kate Nelson was first lady in 46:43.
