Skegness Coaster Martin Ross travelled to Brighton to compete in the town’s marathon.

The route winds through the city streets before finishing up on the spectacular Brighton seafront, which is renowned for its buzzing atmosphere and roaring crowd support.

Martin completed the race in 4:19 despite the extremely hot weather.

Sue Smith fancied a race further afield and opted for the Zurich Marathon.

The event is a fantastic backdrop for Zurich’s charming old town, the elegant Bahnhofstrasse and the beautiful Lake Zurich.

Sue commented: “I would run it again, but temperatures (highs of 25 degrees and no breeze) were not ideal for running.”

Sue clocked 4:18.
