The organisers have big claims about this one. “Our spectacular marathon route is both historic and scenic. We expect some fast times over this stunning course on closed roads.” The claims obviously worked as there were 2534 finishers in the full race and 478 in the 26.2km “metric” marathon.
In the full race the winner was Marius Ionescu of Altrincham and District in 2:21:25 with the first lady home Cath Stibbs of Kent AC in 2:53:28
Steve Clarke and Amy Duck were running for the club
In the metric marathon Duncan Clark of Abbey Runners won the mens races in 1:44:37 with Louise Blizzard of Belgrave Harriers winning the ladies race in 1:47.46
David Whittaker raced for us in this one and finished a highly commendable 11th place overall and 4th placed senior male. Great running.
Results for both the metric and full race can obtained from TDL Event Services website
