Elspeth Turner set yet another Club record when she ran an outstanding 2hr57m52s in the London Marathon. Not only was this a new Club record but she was the first Woman over 50 in the race, an amazing achievement. Carried away by the occasion she was running 2hr51m pace for the first 30km, but although she slowed over the last 12km she still finished strongly. Tony Bourne started slower but ran a more even pace and caught Elspeth with a mile to run and finished in 2hr56m04s.
