Well done to James Osborne for running a new PB of 57:53, he finished the race in 12th place. This means Jimmy entered our all time top ten in 5th place, a great result.

Darren wrote “Thank you to everyone for your kind words of encouragement. I tried my best (although knowing it was going to be difficult after a 3 day stomach bug!!!). All went well and then the cramps took over & could barely run 200m in the last 5 km. but I made it and so pleased I did” Darren finished with a time of 3:25:40 which is a great time considering he was unwell.
