A bleary eyed crew of Carnethies turned up bright and early to marshal the half and full marathons at the Regent Road start. We put out the flags, lined up the potty punters, answered innumerable questions (location of baggage lorries featuring heavily), led the starters to the start, and cleared up the rubbish. Our reward – a good quality running top in any size except medium, and excellent bacon rolls & coffee in the corner café (though a rather long wait). Carnethy reward – the club gets £15 per marshal.
5 Carnethies were spotted running the full marathon – including new member Carina who thought she hadn’t quite qualified enough to wear the Carnethy vest (nonsense!), but did sport a buff, and Margaret on a remarkable 27th marathon. The conditions near perfect at the start, cool and grey, but turning very sunny towards the end.
Let the webteam know your times and maybe how you got on.
Sally Cross writes – 4.13.29 for me and 4.21.22 for Ian Jackson. Hot and tough running at end – I was plagued with cramp!
Other Carnethies may have started in London Rd., apologies to those missed eg –
Kathy Henly – an amazing marathon time of 3hr 26m
