BRAT’s Take On VLM!
On a perfectly peaceful morning 42,000 runners and more importantly 16 hardy BRAT athletes took on Virgin London Marathon challenge of 26.2 miles. Many many miles had been put into training for the event, and all participants should be extremely proud to have completed such a momentous achievement. First BRAT home was Dan Robinson in 2:35:39, with first lady Annie Byrne in 2:49:05. Runners came through fast with 8 BRAT’s in total finishing under 03:00:00 a fantastic achievement and showing the depth in club performance.
All those that took part should be extremely proud of their achievements, performances, funds raised and sacrifices made to the training gods;-) Now make sure you put those feet up and take on those recovery beers – you have earned them!
Special mention should also go out to all those BRAT’s supporting – great team spirit for all those who’s cheer kept everyone going to the finish line!
