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.
