Thurrock heroes raise thousands at London Marathon

THEY COULD NOT have asked for better conditions with blue skies and mild temperatures as a number of Thurrock runners joined over 35,000 other runners in completing the London marathon.

Thurrock Harrier Pat Dobbs has run in every single London marathon since it began in 1981. The 71-year-old veteran ran a remarkable 3 hrs and 48 mins to finish in 8006th place and 4th in his category.

Ockendon’s Tony Brown ran for Children with Cancer UK. We had featured Tony a few weeks ago and all that training was worth it as he finished in 4.44.47.

Grays woman Amy Trencher also had a fantastic marathon. Running for Coleaic UK, she ran a very swift 3hrs 55.39.

Well done to you all.
