"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."
|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."
