Riga and Orpington Marathons

Riga and Orpington Marathons

Well done Tim Brown on finishing the Riga Marathon in a good time in spite of a horrible blood blister on his foot! Tim reports:

‘My first marathon in vegan colours. I struggled home in 3:33 but met some Latvian vegans. Riga is a lovely city, the marathon was very well organised and the locals are friendly. There are also some vegan restaurants so I would definitely recommend it.’

Meanwhile Alex Portwine had a warm one at Orpington:

‘I did the Marafun marathon in Orpington yesterday…not finishing in a great time as I stopped with half a km to go to help a collapsed runner until the medical team arrived (apparently the hospital report he is okay). Good luck to anybody else running this weekend…and be wary of the heat!’
