BRJ's London Marathon Runners

We had 13 runners take part and finish in the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday. There were personal bests for Andrew Barber, Yvonne Homewood and Cheryl Jenner. Cheryl took an amazing 20 minutes off her PB.


Unfortunately, we didn't have all the results in time for the newspaper deadlines and so two BRJ runners didn't get their results in this weeks papers. Louise Bearman ran a time of 4:22:06 in her debut club Marathon and Nicky Barlow recorded a time of 4:34:58 for 26.2 miles distance.


Performance of the weekend though probably goes to Annette Newton who achieved a fantastic 11th place in her age category, 60-64 in her second marathon.


“... some of the costumes people were running in were amazing. I ran much of the way trying to keep up with, and then overtake a fire extinguisher, a foam costume that must have been very hot.” Said Annette


Well done to all our BRJ London Marathon athletes.
