Kevin, just wanted to say a massive thank you to yourself and ALL the volunteers for a fantastic Stour Valley marathon 2015. Really enjoyed it despite my questionable navigation skills (or lack of any navigational skills at all!) and taking a tumble half a mile from the finish and wrecking my ankle! Thanks also to all the runners I had the pleasure of meeting and running with. A brilliantly organised trail marathon on a course full of stunning, picturesque scenery. See you all next year!
Merk, congrats on the sub 3. Similar thing at Abingdon clocking 2:59:32 and having my gf screaming at me to run the fastest 300mtrs I've ever run as I arrived on the track to finish. I just thought I'd add to the suspense!
Same here Jap, after spectating on Sunday it's given me the buzz to have a good go in London 2016. The only setback being my GFA has (I think) expired so looks like I'm going to have to run possibly at Halstead in 12 days aiming at sub 3:15 off the back of no long run build up! I did 16 in April but nothing over 13.1 in May, yet! This could be a very bad idea!
Congrats on the chip time result Lev and Stuart Leaney!
In awe of the threads London marathoners yesterday. Some absolutely amazing performances, PBs and targets made. Massive well done to all of you.
I was a spectator this year and managed to see a good few of you go through Narrow Street while checking your race numbers off the app and shouting encouragement like a lunatic as those numbers or familiar faces came into view. So much so, I've lost my voice! Got to say, there was a HUGE sub 3 train that came through with the Runners World pacers this year, a sight to behold indeed! Hope all those runners not on here hit their goal times too. A brilliant day out!
