Snapped at the Finish (Page 2) Page 1 2 3
Doug Hutchinson, 3:07

"I’d advise runners to concentrate on their long runs and stamina. It made a huge difference today. Everything went so well."

Howard Elliott, 3:01

"It was my first time past 20 miles, so I struggled a bit near the end. The last few miles were so tough, but once you hit the finishing straight it becomes so emotional."

Chris Brown, 3:07

"I expected a tough race and huge crowds, and I don’t think either of my presumptions was wrong. I’d like to say thanks to everyone who cheered me on. I owe them a lot for helping me set a PB."

Alexis Chapellier (Fra), 3:09

Neil McBride, 3:24

"I’ve just learnt what it's like to hit the wall, and it wasn’t fun. I wish I’d gone slightly slower at the start. Still, I had a great time and it was a wonderful experience."

Cesare Ranieri, 3:32

"Superb! What a great experience. Now all I have to do is find my wife and go home…"

Dan Campion, 3:27

"That was my first marathon and I enjoyed it. My top tip for any marathon wannabie is to be realistic about your start time. It will make a huge difference to the outcome of your race and I wish I’d understood how important it was when I entered. I’ll be back next year."

Elizabeth Hufton, 3:35

Adam Charlesworth, 3:02, and Ian Ralph, 3:49

"We were both running our first marathons, and everything they say about the crowds is true."

Jessica Cunliff, 3:28

"All my expectations were met."
