Phew what a Scorcher!!

This weekend saw the most famous of the Spring Marathons – The London Marathon.  The hottest London Marathon on record reaching temperatures of over 27 degrees.  99 percent of the runners had been training all through the winter in the icy weather and nothing could prepare them for that heat.  The dreams of achieving a PB were pushed aside and the main goal was to get to the end in one piece and without heat exhaustion.  

Andrew Fletcher was the first FRC runner home in a fantastic sub 3 hour time of 2:51:14, followed by Lloyd Worsley 2:53:15, Ian McGilloway 2:56:03, David Gillett 2:58:57, Phil Hoyland 3:15:18, Tim Warren 3:24:26, Torben Jessen 3:36:11, Nikki Goodwin 3:39:29, David Weekes 3:42:07, Darren Crew 3:51:09, Chris Woolgar 3:54:10, James Stroud 4:01:17, Paul Bartlett 4:02:44, Danielle Ingleston 04:17:19, Catherine O’Connor 4:21:18, Catriona Watts 4:31:26, Caroline Curtis 4:44:32, Ray Johnson 5:07:53, Gary Brazier 05:51:08
