Report from Lisa Maughan:
“Just back from the Greater Manchester Marathon – my first ever Marathon! What a brilliant day it has been. The race organisation was seamless and the crowd support was amazing!
Having my name on my shirt was definitely a bonus, as I felt like a celebrity with everyone cheering me on. The endless supply of sweets and chocolate was very welcome, particularly towards the end of the run and high-fiveing lots of little kids made me smile throughout.
I took a tumble at mile 20 though – which didn’t make me smile – and this lost me a bit of time although I dusted myself off and limped home from there!
Still very pleased with my chip time though (4.16.38) and 3,168th position overall”.
Also for OAC, Sara Richard finished 2,992nd (4.13.30).
