It's the day of the 5k race and Andrea presents Lloyd with a new pair of trainers though she also gives an excuse as to why she can't be there to see him set off, arousing Jenna's suspicions. Michelle tells Steve she wants him to beat Lloyd in order to annoy Andrea. A moody Sally tells her work colleagues about her and Tim's split. Lloyd goads Steve into agreeing a forfeit that the loser of the two of them in the race has to drink a pint from the winner's sweaty training shoe. In a bid to get back into Rita’s good books, Dennis looks for a job. The runners congregate at the Red Rec for the race. Kal is annoyed to see Nick and Leanne chatting to together while Lloyd is upset that Andrea isn't there. Gail nags Nick to take it easy. Steve and Lloyd miss the starting horn as they are busy bickering with each other and finds themselves at the back of the pack. Dev struggles to keep up with Kal and Nick while Julie has to dart into the bushes as she's desperate for the toilet. Maddie snaps at Sophie for trying to control her. Sophie’s worried about Sally when she hears from Sean that Tim’s walked out on her. Kal graciously lets Nick beat him in the race. Steve accidentally trips up Lloyd and streaks ahead. Mary’s proud when Dev crosses the finish line. Norris tells Rita he saw Dennis coming out of the Rovers when he was supposedly job hunting. Steve crosses the finishing line, badly out of breath. Owen confronts Anna wanting to know what’s bothering her. Lloyd’s furious with Steve when he crosses the finish line before him. They squabble and suddenly Lloyd collapses with a heart attack...
