Striders at London Marathon 17th April

There were six members in the race, and pride of place has to go to Dawn Mellor, who became only the third lady member of the club to beat the four hour barrier when she finished in 3:54:07. And two new age group records were set in our womens veterans section. Firstly Ann Everitt set a new F/45 time of 4:39:30, with Fran Whelan in the same age group only a few minutes behind here in 4:42:14. Then Gillian Kellett set a new time for the F/50 age group with a time of 4:53.17. The two men who took part were Ian Robertson, who ran a new personal best time for London of 3:08:25, getting closer and closer to the sub three hour mark, and Dave Kellett, who finished in 5:40:07.
