Race Results w/e 07/04/19

8 April 2019 - By James Blackshaw

Manchester Marathon

WRC had a great representation at Manchester, with four runners making the journey up the M1 for one of the UK’s biggest marathons. Charlotte Roberts was the first across the line for Witham in 3:54:33, and coming well within the top 25% of her category. Adam Regan was next in a fantastic time of 4:00:43, especially considering it was his debut marathon. Tom Ashley, or ‘Tashley’ was next across the line, in his first of two marathons in a month, and by using Lemsip Max as a fuelling compound, managed an impressive time of 4:10:27. Elizabeth Prior wrapped things up for Witham in a great time of 4:34:14, and her day appeared to be ruined only slightly by the fact the beer at the end was non-alcoholic.

New prospective member Elliott Moulster also ran in 3:35:44, so let’s hope he joins up! 🙂

Great work marathoners!
