The return of the London Marathon saw thousands of runners passing many of the capital’s iconic places in front of very enthusiastic support.
Members of Crawley Athletic Club who completed the 26.2 miles included;
Michal Blaszczuk 2:44:54 (pb)
Harry Sterling 2:53:18 (pb)
Stuart Adesilu M55 3:28:34
Walter Hill M65 3:51:08
Jeremy Carmichael M65 4:21:56
Congratulations have to go to club member Ben Short who "personifies fitness" and although Ben didn't run the whole marathon he supported Harry by pacing him for 18 miles, and then he was at the finishing stretch assisting the other athletes he works with!
Racing over the shorter distance of 2,62km, competitors in the London Mini Marathon were representing their regions in the British Road Race Championship. Crawley Athletic Club athlete Yasmin Kashdan (8:29), running for the South East, finished 10th in the U17w race.
