- Abingdon, Oxfordshire
My first sub 3 Marathon in perfect conditions at this really well organised event.
Trusting the process and training hard has really paid off for me. I started strong and was able to maintain a steady pace to get my membership of the sub 3 club.
Pleased to get second ever sub 3 and 13 minute pb on a course ideal for good times. Perfect conditions and very well organised event.
Trained consistently from London to aim for sub 2:45 for Championship place. Great course, encouragement from others aiming for 2:45 perfect day for running. All down to P&D and 6 x 400's ! Held on for in final few miles for 8th overall boom
Very pleased to run 14 minutes quicker than my first marathon in April, the organizers and marshals were fantastic. It was also nice to meet the people from Art Of Your Success after the run and buy a few things including a marathon talk buff.
This was my first marathon. Well organised and well marshalled flat course. Trained with a 3:30 target. Enjoyed the first half going through in 1:44. Hit the wall at mile 20 and readjusted my target and finished the second half in 2:00 for a massive negative split and a sub 3:45 marathon.
At almost 56 I decided it was time to run my local marathon 25 years after my last one.
Thanks to the organisers for a great event and to the volunteers and supporters for their smiles and encouragement; loved it. I'll be back next year to go under three hours.
