by the way - we are still working through the pictures from the Abingdon Marathon and with the volume we're working through we anticipate them being available on Wednesday morning. Keep subscribed to keep informed of progress.
Here's a little photo summary of the race:
Leaving the Start field the lead car headed out to clear a path around the streets of wimbledon.
As the Headline Sponsor http://www.wimbledonaudi.co.uk/ they have a long association with the race, providing the lead car and sponsoring it. They don't do roadsweepers, so a slightly faster vehicle was in order... They do sell them without clocks on too, if you were wondering.
Number 10, the eventual winner could be seen picking his pace early on as the start got underway...
The Race winner, Number 10 (in 32:42), Salah Hmatou Amaidane of team Sandblast Arts was promoting a fundraising race Running the Sahara http://www.sandblast-arts.org/specialfeature.php Apparently it's in the Sahara Desert - so go there if you fancy a challenge.
First lady home winning her first race was Zoe West of Epsom and Ewell Harriers, who was really running a warm down after her 4km x-country race the day before...
A competive sprint finish between James and George around the 42 min mark.
Former top 25 international tennis player Annabel Croft who is now a presenter on Sky Sports and Eurosport came home in a respectable 47:52 to finish 213th overall.
Things get busy at the finish with 3 competitors finishing in 45:12 (gun time) - but probably aiming for sub 45 on the chip time...
Congratulations to all of you who competed and to Marlo and the organising team for putting on another great event.
