London Marathon - 3rd October 2021
Last weekend witnessed the return of the London Marathon for the masses, following the 2020 event being limited to an elite-only field held within a restricted area, due to Covid-19. Bourton Roadrunners were fortunate to have five runners join tens of thousands of others, ranging from world champions to fun runners.
Bourton’s five, covering the full age-range, were proudly representing their club and a range of charities, all testing their bodies over the 26.2 mile route, supported around the course by the crowd, plus friends and family.
First home for the club was Darren Long, who has a PB of 2 hours 52 minutes, finishing comfortably in a time of 3:18:37. Next to finish was Jennie Glass in a time of 3:59:47. Liz Hulcup (LV65) had a brilliant run in 4:31:05, just ahead of Amy Hallam who finished in 4:34:20. Rob Williams, who is more accustomed to shorter races, showed amazing resilience proudly representing his charity in a time of 6:16:30; well done to Rob.
