Hayle Runners at the London Marathon

At the weekend, 16 runners from Hayle travelled upcountry to take part in a little-known race called the ‘London Marathon’. The group was made up of first-timers and more experienced marathoners, with a combination of good-for-age, charity, and ballot places. They were ably supported by other club members who travelled up to cheer them on and provide vital finish line beers.

Some of the runners started getting into the competitive mindset early with quizzes and games on the train, as well as beginning some vital carb-loading with a giant box of pastries! After picking up their numbers together, they headed out for a meal and then (we hope!) turned in early in preparation for the big day.

The day itself was grey and drizzly, so very familiar territory for a group from Cornwall. The Hayle contingent joined over 48,000 others to run the course that started in Greenwich park and took them around lots of the sights of London before finishing on the Mall. Needless to say, the atmosphere was incredible with crowds lining the route even in the damp weather.
