Caroline Upton, again at the same venue completed the Marathon distance in 5hrs 29 mins which put her 28th out of 45 as well as 5th female and 3rd in age.
John Blundy has not been able to compete for 18months so why not re-start by nipping over to Geneva for a few days and running a half marathon in 1h 39m 03s.
Piotr Dura claimed most running miles and air miles combined. Start with The Poznan Half Marathon in Poland supported by family and friends and completed in 1h 45m. The weather was wonderful, spring was in full flow and 6000 runners enjoyed the race. Come back via Edinburgh and take in a very wet Half Marathon through this famous Scottish city in 1h 39m. Then to finish off the trip call in at Manchester to run The Greater Manchester Marathon in 3h 41m. This was Piotr’s first marathon; fortunately he did not have to suffer the wet and freezing conditions like Chris and Claire last year.
