Our Hero!

Hooo Boy! It's over.

Well, he did it. Despite the unseasonably hot weather (23° apparently), which had thousands of entrants dropping out. Of the 15,000 people who registered to take part in the city's second marathon only 8,000 people started the race!

It was a great experience, he says, and the atmosphere was fantastic. It was heartening to see so many people turn out to cheer the runners on.

Hoping to finish the 26.2 miles in under 4 hours, he had to come to terms with the fact that this was not going to be possible in the heat and managed to finish in a respectable 4:08:31.

He actually finished in 2,560th place out of a field of 8,000. We're so proud of him!

Simon would like to thank all those who supported him, sponsoring him in his bid to raise money for the NSPCC. It's not too late to contribute, btw. If you're feeling generous you can still donate

He would also like to thank Neil and Janet for putting him up the night before the race and for turning out to cheer him on.

He enjoyed the experience so much that he's already signed up for the Brighton Marathon next year!
