James Baker had a seven-minute lead by the time he crossed the line to win the 2014 Chichester Half Marathon.

His closest challenger, James Ellis, had pulled out ten miles into the race and that meant a huge winning margin for Baker, whose time of 1hr 13min 05sec eclipsed even that of runner-up Graham Russ, who finished in 1.20.26.
