Congratulations to all our Old Cranleighans who took part in the 2019 London Marathon.
The first to finish was Felicity Bull (West 2016) who completed the course in an impressive 3:30:56 which we believe may be the fastest time recorded in a marathon by a female OC.
The veteran in the field, Neil Galliford (East 1983), broke the four-hour barrier with a time of 3:56:58, followed by another more recent East boy, George Macdonald (East 2016) in 4:23:31 with Emilie Subba Row (West 2010) not far behind in a time of 4:37:32. The final OC finisher was Chantelle Phillips (West 2016) in 6:20:14.
Our best wishes go to Will Langmead (East 2010) who was on course for a sub four-hour finish when he collapsed less than three miles from home due to low glucose and dehydration and had to spend the night in A&E.
