Pictured are Tracey Dickinson, Dawn Bailey and Samantha Tate.
Everyone of them had worked hard to ensure they were fit enough to get round and hopefully achieve a time they would be proud of.
The first Strider to finish was Greg Southern in a time of 2 hrs 44 mins 37 secs.
Behind him was Sandy Telfer, finishing in 3:16-31, a time that means he can enter again next year without having to go through the worry of the ballot.
Sam Tate completed in 4:54-15 and Dawn Bailey crossed the line in 5:08-28 with Tracey Dickinson achieving 5:12-40.
Jax Sesstein clocked 5:42-37.
Strider Steve Thacker was taking part in the Shakespeare Marathon at Stratford upon Avon and completed the race in 3:43-10.
Sleaford Striders are based at the football club in Boston Road and are not only involved in marathon running.
