Tommy Fantastic!

Tommy Hughes had an outstanding run in the Virgin London  Marathon when he recorded a time of 2hrs. 29mins. 55secs. to finish 1st. M50 and 54th. overall.
The  unassuming 52 year old  Irish man, who competed in the marathon  for The Republic of  Ireland at the 1992  Barcelona Olympic Games found the early pace uneven as he attempted to make up time after trying to clear the congestion in the early stages of the race. By 6 miles  he had settled down and he was on the pace until 20 miles when the wind came into play, however he cracked on for to record a truly magnificent time.

  Other club members taking part were Kate Brookes who ran 3hrs. 46min. 54secs. and Jody Ward who ran 3hrs. 54 mins.
