Our Marathon phenomenon, Adam Holland, took his NOTFAST vest to The November Nightmare Marathons 2nd -7th November. Race venues were split between Lightmoor and Coalport in Telford. Adam completed all six marathons to his usual high standard by winning four of the races, placing second in one and only dropping to sixth in one when his knee was giving him more pain than is normally tolerable. Adam’s times were 03:47:00 P:1, 03:25:22 P:1, 03:57:53 P:2, 03:19:19 P:1, 03:51:33 P:1, 05:14:08 P:6.
