A marathon weekend for SLOW members

This was a weekend of big events and impressive athletic performances for SLOW members, both in national level orienteering and running.

Ed Catmur won the Great Welsh Marathon in Llanelli in a time of 2:36:45. Ed had a commanding lead, seven minutes in front of the second placed runner.

In London, four SLOW members finished within five minutes of each other:

  • Ben Roberts, 2:57:06
  • Evan Barlow, 2:59:14
  • Dan Findlay-Robinson, 2:59:50
  • Tom Cochrane, 3:00:09

An honorable mention should go to SLOW affiliate member Harold Wyber (LOK) who came 79th overall in the London Marathon with a time of 2:35:36.

Congratulations all round!
