Race Report - Marathon, Tri-athlon and beginners...

Four members of Lowestoft Road Runners took part in the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday 23rd April, one of the Abbott World Majors and for many very much a bucket list event. First home was Paul Lyon in 752nd place with a new personal best time of 2:48:53. Lisa Riley, the only lady representing the club at this event, finished 10,361st in 3:49:32. Ian Chilley sustained an injury shortly before the half-way point due to a carelessly discarded water bottle but finished regardless in 21,049th in 4:31:41. Completing the team was Phillip Laurier in 35,261st with a time of 6:07:38.

The weekend wasn't all about London though with club members also taking on the East Coast Triathlon in Great Yarmouth on Saturday, consisting of a 250m pool swim, 17km cycle along the seafront and a 3km run on the promenade. Among a field of 119 Natasha Korovilas finished 24th overall, taking the prize for 3rd lady in a time of 52:46. Shaun Kay was 40th with a time of 56:10.
