Matthew, who is training for the Manchester Marathon, finished in 2:34:45. He didn’t race flat out as his big day was only 2 weeks away. Nevertheless, this was still a very respectable result indeed. This was his first ever approximately
20 mile road race.
Also training for Manchester, Caroline crossed the line in 3:04:03 which was good enough for 4th place in the Female Veteran 45 category. She also took the sensible approach of using the event for training rather than racing & was 4 minutes slower than her personal best for the distance.
