A number of British athletes traveled to The Netherlands on Sunday to compete in the famous “4 Miles of Groningen” race which is one of the biggest running events in Holland.

Jonny Mellor finished an excellent 10th place and 1st Brit in a time of 18:13, 5 seconds ahead of double European medallist Andy Vernon who had a decent lead at the 2 mile mark but Jonny showed his class on the road by chasing him down and pulling away for a strong finish.

Well done also to Sophie Whiteside who was 19th female in a time of 23:38, 3rd Brit behind Helen Clitheroe and Elle Vernon.

Results are available HERE and also on RunBritain for just the UK athletes. There is also a good video at the 2 mile mark on this link.
