Chicago Marathon – Patrick Wadsworth completes his final Marathon Major

I had entered the Chicago marathon ballot last year in my quest to finish the Six Marathon Major and been unsuccessful.  Just as I was entering the ballot this year I thought I’d just check the Good For Age time and discovered that it was 20 minutes slower than for London.  A quick check of […]

Bournemouth Marathon – Caroline Stuart completes her 3rd marathon of 2018

An easy early morning flight to Berlin and onto the bus to the centre of the city.  All going well until a car decided to side swipe the bus and we had to get off the bus and transfer to the next one – luckily it was pretty obvious what was happening and no need […]
