Barcelona Marathon – 10 March 2019

Well done to M35 athlete Michael Richardson who finished in 4388th place with a chip time of 3:42:43

“Heading back to the UK with a lovely DAC vest tan line. Always a pleasure to wear and represent, good or bad performance wore with pride through the streets of Catalonia

Marató Barcelona absolutely delighted with that in the struggle of the glorious barca sun ”salt tablets worked a treat”. A recent run of annoying injuries put participation in question and came with a target of just getting a sub4. Struggles kicked in at 15k but managed to pick it up and progress nicely at steady pace. 4-6 weeks run free now to hopefully recover at last”
