Continuing, Michael Todd 7,426th (3.45.24), Gilly Wight 14,441st (4.16.25), Dave Hainsworth 15,226th (4.19.44), Billy Rayner 16,177th (4.23.44), Mary Hampshire 18,818th (4.34.33), India Haresign 21,223rd (4.45.09 – a pb) and Ian Broadbent 21,291 (4.45.09).
Regrettably, Martin Haresign had to make the brave decision to pull-out after half way due to flu.
Dave Hainsworth comments, “I thought it was warm in London ’til I saw Colin’s picture at Meanwood! On the subject of bright colours I was persuaded of the miraculous properties of beetroot juice concentrate at the marathon expo and tried it in the race. Not sure if it helped my time but the ‘after effects’ are spectacular – and somewhat alarming when they show up at the end of a marathon”.
