Britton (Centurian Ultra Team) is an ultra-marathon runner who has represented Great Britain in the World Championships 24-hours race, so this was a mere sprint to victory in 55min24sec from team-mate Paul Navesey (56.27) and first local Kris Noble (Sittingbourne Striders, 58.32).

An hour is still a respectable mark for 10 miles and this barrier was also breached by first M40, Stephen Throssell (Larkfield, 58.37), Owen Mitchell (Thanet, 59.17), Robbie Higgins (Canterbury, 59.25) and M40 Jim Addison (Beckenham, 59.50).

Higher age group leaders were M50 Paul Mingay (Tiptree, 1hr01.04) and M60 Roger Saunders (unattached, 1:07.15).

Heslop (Paddock Wood, W45, 1:02.46) was well clear of Amy Clements (Kent AC, 1:04.24) and W35 Jill Cliff (Deal Tri, 1:05.08) in the women’s race, where the top 12 broke 70 minutes.

Sarah Anne Mooney (Larkfield, 1:08.16) was seventh overall and Barbara Wenman (Canterbury, 1:13.22) led the over-55 category.
