Virgin London Marathon – Sunday 24 April 2016
The much awaiting event of the year…. the Virgin London Marathon!
Six Jags made their way to the capital for this year’s race. The weather started off slightly chilly but the sun broke through and made it quite a pleasant day!
Zac Mace came in first for the club in a PB time of 3.05.24 and qualifying for Good for Age entry. Shortly followed by Ben Letzer in 3.09.20 and Alan Bushell in 3.16.56.
Ellie Bye finished in 3.28.40 and also qualified for Good for Age entry! Stephen Pointer running his first marathon in aid of the Benjamin Foundation finished in 3.57.41. Heather Hollister came in with a time of 4.14.37 and also qualified for Good for Age entry. Well done everyone for all their hard work and training.
Thanks also to the support crowd, consisting of Mel, Paul Emery, Peter KC, Jackie, Jerry, Sonya, Emma, Clare and Sarah who followed the runners down to London with banners and flags, Emma and Dean and of course, Rod and Jackie who got THAT flag on the TV!!
An amazing day, amazing crowds and of course an amazing achievement for all those who took part!!!
