Stuart Boulton manfully staggers to the keyboard and reports:
I have just competed in the Coventry & Warwickshire Marathon Tour to celebrate 100 years since the first British Marathon was ran in Coventry prior to the London Olympics in 1908. It was FIVE race stages within a week which equalled the magic total of 26.2 miles.
The first stage was the traditional Coventry May Day 5 Mile last week, and then this bank holiday weekend, it was 4 races back-to-back everyday Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon. I am pleased to confirm that I did quite well in every race (with Mara-tour places between 11th – 14th) and out of 61 local club runners I finished 11th overall in the league table, completing all 26.2 miles in 2 hours 57 minutes… without any knee problems!!
