Berlin Marathon – 28 September 2014
James Smith has been running marathons all over the world for several years, he has wanted to go under 3 hours for as long as I have known him and today he smashed it! He ran Berlin in 2:56:40, this was a PB of 11 minutes and 28 seconds. Well done to James who trained for many months building up to this, I am sure you are already planning your next one. James enters the all time top 10 in 7th place, his 5k splits are below.
