KENYAN runner Priscah Jeptoo today added the Great North Run women’s crown to her 2013 London Marathon win - but missed out on a course record.

The 29-year-old was already the third-best women’s half-marathon runner of all-time, with a best of 66 minutes and 11 seconds.

Today she registered an unconfirmed time of 1:05:44 - just four seconds short of the women’s record.
