Well done to the three Newport & District Running Club members who ran in this year’s London Marathon. Louise Patterson managed to achieve her goal of running quicker than 5 and a half hours, with her new Marathon PB of 5:26:55. She said afterwards: “Absolutely overwhelmed with all the support I’ve been given this weekend. I’m so proud of myself for achieving a sub 5:30 marathon. Had an absolute blast and the London Marathon was so much more than I ever expected it to be”.
Lindsay Browning ran a time of 3:49:52, saying afterwards:” I had a GREAT time. Well done to any other Newport runners and thank you to the Newport spectator I heard shout for me!”. Alex Watts similarly praised the day, saying it was “a day to remember; the crowds were awesome!” after finishing with a time of 4:50:07.
