London Marathon Results

A HUGE well done to all the runners who took part in the London Marathon. It wasn't the easiest run with very hot temperatures, and there were a few injuries along the way. But everyone should be really proud of themselves.

And a special well done to Daz...who elected to join the budgie smuggling club and run with nothing but the support of his lovely wife Helen.

Pocklington MarathonersThe uptake on one of the ultimate challenges for a runner - the marathon - is pretty high this year with Pocklington Runners, so featured here are the those who are taking part in marathons in the early part of 2011. From beginners to runners who've been doing marathons for years, you can find out who's doing what and who's going the extra mile by raising funds for some very worthy charities. Follow this link or click on the image to find out more...and if you wish to donate to one of the charities listed, your assistance would be very much appreciated by both charity and runner.
