Search by name or club or number, click on little green plus sign.

Annoyingly it does not directly show you established finish time.

Thanks, Susan, by the way. Basey and son came to church today for the first time together so son could see where we are getting married and he said he enjoyed himself. I'm so pleased! Everyone was pleased to see us and to say congratulations. I wore my Brighton marathon finishers tee shirt too. =)

Didds junior #1 safely home - 4:40:17, slower than he wanted but still a great performance on a hot & sunny day - I got sun burn spectating. He paced well in first half in c.30 min 5ks, got to half-way in 2:07 but had to run/walk from mile 19. Saw him on the Embankment at just before mile 25 looking strong which gave him a spurt for a strong finish.

Didn't see Wabo, Martin or FRC - seen Wabo's time on Facebook . Will have a look on VLM website for other times.

Made me think again about entering ballot for next year - was definitely thinking about again before today but probably prefer autumn Maras tbh.

me too Didds... but there are not that many of them... been looking .. maybe tempted by Gloucester in January!

Evening all

First Thank you once again Susan  for you and Gordan  being such  amazing hosts

well I gave everything today and it worked a new pb in 3.41.08 and I hope this helps In 2007 I ran my first London marathon in 4.36 so nearly an hour quicker so if you want a sub 4 just keep going and you will achieve it.

JUst looked at my splits kept a good even pace until the last 2k so nearly got it right

Good going martin!
21/04/2013 at 22:14
Great work Martin ... Sleep well !

Had a great day. 3:15:04 -Just missed out on sub 3:15 by 5 seconds for GFA.

Thought I would be upset but not. I'm alive well fit and as they used to say in a 60s TV show... I'm not a number, I'm a free man
Plenty of marathons and ultras to do, things to see.

Congrats to martin too.. Was nice to meet up before hand.

Wabo amazing

Had an amazing day but missed out on my sub-4 But hey, it was London and it was my first marathon  

Key moments were needing to take a number 2 at mile 16, hamstring strain at mile 16, and cramp in my calf in mile 20.

My chip time is 04:05:54 so not that far off. I really lost heart after the forced toilet beak in mile 16 and i think trying to catch up hurt me. By the time the hamstring gave in I was really quite demoralised. Still had an awesome time and Garmin tell me my average moving pace was 9:06 min/mile! Bodes well for the future!
