Heroes! Thurrock runners shine at the London Marathon 2017

ON SUNDAY, over 40,000 runners ran the gruelling 26 miles and 385 yards of the London Marathon.

Amongst them were a number of brave Thurrock runners, seen for charity and some for their own personal goal of managing to run from Blackheath to Buckingham Palace.

Here, in no particular order, are a number of the Thurrock heroes.

Aveley’s Martin Longhurst competed the course in 3.27.14. Martin ran for Cystic Fibrosis.
