Following the oldest path in Britain, past Bronze Age forts and the Avebury stone circle, it is a huge test of physical and mental strength.

And Ball managed to finish in an impressive time of 14 hours and 14 minutes.

Francesca Rawlings took on the Two Tunnels half marathon in Bath, which has the longest underground section of any UK race, and was first woman to finish in 1:26.50.

A group of 29 took on the Towpath 10k Mob Match, led home by Luke Murray in seventh place.
