Each runner was allocated a wave two minutes apart based on previous 5K times and it was organised in a Covid-19 compliant manner.

It was a two lap and 5.2 mile course, which saw Anthony Martin Romero come through the finish in eleventh place at 29.36.

Romero, who now resides in Spain, flew over to join his team-mates, but it meant a two-week quarantine for him beforehand and no running until race day.
