Andy and Tom go sub-three in London
Monday 26th April 2010
Phoenix fielded just four runners this year (Brighton Marathon having attracted a good few). Andy Bone has been just outside that magic 3 hour mark for the last few years (3:02 in 2009) but having trained with single-minded dedication was rewarded with a magnificent 2:54:58 for 715th place. Tom Farsides also smashed decisively through the barrier with a pb by 3:40 to record 2:57:23 (858th). Daren Elliot knocked about 37 minutes from his 2009 time to record 3:19:00 2948th and Lance Bellers running his first marathon, and with training interrupted by injury, managed an impressive 3:27:35 (3954th). Well done everybody.
