London Marathon report – 22 April 2018

Louth AC – London Marathon report – 22 April 2018

5 members of Louth AC, all in the Age category 45-49, took part in this year’s Virgin Money London Marathon, with one member Clare Koslow running in her first marathon.

Both Andrew Byatt and James McNamee entry in the Good for Age qualification with James attempted to break the Guinness World Record for fastest Viking over marathon distance. Lindsey Marie Phillips a ballot place.  2 charity runners of Jane Lammiman running for the ABF The Soldier’s Charity (formerly the Army Benevolent Fund) which has provided support to soldiers, veterans and their immediate families, for life.  Clare Koslow, an Athletic/Running Club place, running for the Alzheimer’s Society for 2 people she had met 14 years ago, Theo and Jean, sadly with the passing of Theo in December 2014 due to the illness.

With an exceptionally hot day and the hottest on record at the London Marathon, weather was not quite record breaking for the competitors and a quote from James “Realized pretty early on that it wasn’t going to happen (on his record attempt) so eased back and enjoyed the crowds of spectators. Love this marathon and will be back for another attempt at the Viking record when it is a tad cooler”.

All agreed there was brilliant support all the way around and they thoroughly enjoyed being part of the London marathon experience.

Times were slower and no Personal bests or Target times achieved but one club member, Clare Koslow, had a fantastic run in her first ever marathon to finish in a credible time of 4 hours 38 min 45 seconds.

Clare and Jane each passed their donation target.

Clare’s target of £350.00 of which the total so far raised is £405.00 + £31.25 Gift Aid. Jane’s target of £1,800.00 of which the total so far raised is £2,376.25 with Gift Aid.

James McNamee – 03.25.57

Andrew Byatt – 03.34.39

Clare Koslow – 04.38.45

Lindsey Marie Phillips – 05.07.14

Jane Lammiman – 05.37.17

All members should be proud of their acheivements.
