The man, who is aged 46, was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Today GEAR race director Roger Partridge said: “I would say that the news is more promising. He has come out of sedation and doctors feel he is a bit better, although he is still very ill.

“Our thoughts are with the runner and his family.”

Record numbers took part in the 10K run, which is staged along King’s Lynn’s waterfront and town centre.

Almost 2,000 runners, aged from four to 83, set off from the town’s Tuesday Market Place.

Thousands of spectators lined the streets to cheer them on.

Aaron Scott, from Stamford, came home first in the main race, with a time of 31:11.
