While there will no doubt be many great performances in London this Sunday, I cannot imagine any will be quite as "jaw dropping" as the new World Vet 80 record set by the great Ed Whitlock in Rotterdam last Sunday...3 hours 25 minutes 40 !

Just think of any 80 year olds you know, and then imagine them running a full marathon at around 7'50 mile pace. If it hadn't actually happened, I would have said it would be impossible.

Makes my times as a 52 year old look very sad indeed !

Good grief! I hope that means I'll get faster as I get older !I'm 43 and am aiming/hoping for sub 3:30 in 3 weeks time - guess this is more motivation! Huge respect to the guy.
