This weekend saw one of the biggest events in the running calendar- the Virgin Money London Marathon. The popularity of this event meant that getting a ballot place was very difficult & the Harriers only had three participants taking place.
Running conditions were near perfect with a cloudy but calm day for the runners.
Jan Wolf & Philip McNevin secured the two Harrier club places. Jan was delighted to finish in a time of 3.19.57 with Phil completing the 26.2 miles in 4.58.21. Julie Bolitho was running for the Royal British Legion & finished in 5.58.54.
Closer to home in Exeter at a slightly lower key event, Jenny Orpwood took on the Cupcake Caper. This multi lap event takes in paths & trail. Jenny chose to do 4 of the 3.3 mile laps. She commented that this was a great event.
