The London Marathon Sunday 13th April - 13/4/14

Congratulations to everyone who ran today. In a very exciting race, Richard Kowenicki was the first Thames man home in an excellent 2:31:39. Ben Reynolds yet again showed what a classy runner he is by coming in close behind with a beautifully paced 2:33:53. He came within 30 seconds of placing in the global top 50 all-time M50 list. James McMullan paid for a frisky first half, and faded to a respectable 2:34:49. Brian Thursby-Pelham ran a fine 2:35:03. They were closely followed by David Symons with 2:41:14 and Nic Gould in 2:41:54. Simon Wurr suffered from a stitch but valiantly finished with a 2:44:48. Ed Catmur had a cold but finished with 2:47:42.
Claire Day was the first Thames lady home, running a PB of 2:58:01. Keeping her in check was Toby Pearson with 2:58:05 and Jerry Watson who ran 2:58:28; also Peter Woodburn just behind with 2:58:35. Al Kennis, running for a Charity, finished with 3:32:49, and Alex MacKula ran 3:55:48.

Second-claimer Chris Finill defied hamstring problems for nigh on 35km, before his body called time on 33 consecutive sub-3 hour runs, and this year had to settle for a 3:10. Finally, Jeffrey Gordon did not attempt to continue his magnificent ever-present record ended this year. I should like to pay tribute to his inspirational achievement.
