Tim Carter - Worcester Marathon Champion

B.R.A.T's Tim Carter set himself a new challenge at the start of this year: to win a marathon. After chasing a time at London last year Tim fancied a change so his new goal was to win the race in his new home town. The course is a challenging one, hilly and exposed in most parts, and the day of the race saw very windy conditions. Hardly ideal marathon weather. Undeterred, Tim set out in the lead and had a large gap at 20 miles, which he passed in around 2 hours flat. The windy conditions, along with a sore hamstring, slowed Tim down in the last 10k but he hung on to win by the narrowest of margins.

Well done Tim - you can be forgiven for missing the 12 stage (but only because you won!). Pictured above is Tim receiving his winner's medal alongside Dan Robinson who used the event as a training run for the London Marathon next week and finished third after running the first 16 miles with Tim.
