Spring Marathoners!!

21/03/2016 09:41:23

Many club members are in the final few weeks of winter training in preparation for their spring marathon.

Roger Hart recently sent me a link: http://www.raf.mod.uk/rafathletics/Administration/jimdixon.cfm which I thought might be of interest to some of you, as it relates to an ex-club member. The Royal Air Force article is about Jim Dixon who was a WAC runner in the 1980's and whom I trained with for a number of years. Jim settled in the area after being stationed at RAF Locking. At the age of 55 he won his age category at the 1987 London Marathon in a time of 2hrs 35mins 33secs.

Good luck to all of you about to undertake a marathon and be inspired by your current and past club colleagues.
