Several other runners competed in the Bridge Aquathlon, which involved a 650m swim followed by a three-lap 5.8k run.

With the event limited to 40 competitors due to water safety and staggered starts, Debbie Coyle and Charlotte Owen were first and second female finisher respectively. Coyle clocked up an 8.35 swim and 34.25 run while Owen came in with a swim time of 8.51 and a 41.13 run.

Runners can run a virtual London Marathon on Sunday, October 4.
