    London Marathon 2010

    Sun 25 Apr 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.

    Brighton Marathon

    Sun 18 Apr 2010

    Great weather, great organisation, great support. The inaugural Brighton Marathon was a success beyond most people's expectation. And Phoenix featured large on the day. Second claim member, Tom Naylor was, with Tim Hutchins, the event organiser – so hearty congratulations to them. Olympic Champion and club founder Steve Ovett started the race. Mike Whyte and Tim Woodman fulfilled their pacing roles to perfection and, of course, 29 of you took part and came up with some quality performances. We had four runners under three hours led by returning member Neil Boniface (7th in 2:41:23). Mike Greenwood ran the best judged race of all finishing 18th in a time of 2:50:13 which shaves his previous best by some 25 minutes!. Good to see Daryl Hards back in shape and although he slipped back in the closing miles managed an impressive 2:54:36. Max-Patrick Lippert was supposed to be running the Boston Marathon but his plans fell to ash (of the Icelandic variety) but he was offered a last minute place in the race and responded with an even-paced 2:59:42 for 90th position. As you can see from the list here, a further 18 Phoenix athletes finished under four hours with everyone safely home by five. As if that weren't enough, Charlie Grice won the mini mile event. Last year Charlie broke Steve Ovett's 800m Brighton schoolboy record, taking it down to 1:55.80. On Sunday he got to meet the great man in person. Archie Davis was first U13 boy in the mini mile.
