This year’s Virgin Money London Marathon had a colourful selection of runners from the club; James Head was the first from the club to run along The Mall and finished in 2:56:11. James’ pacing was impeccable and his 1:28 half way time shows this. Stuart Bird trained as best he could this winter and completed the famous event in 3:34:28. Annabel Roberts was given race number 666 but due to a respiratory infection that took hold, she was unable to make the trip to London. That meant the club’s female hopes were on Jenny Gardiner; Jenny had had an unlucky spell with her training picking-up an injury which stole weeks of her training. Nevertheless, she did a fine job of completion with 5:01:54. Finally, and also having woes with training sessions, Doug Clark finished in 5:31:51.
