Clive has successfully completed the London Marathon today in a time of 3:33:41 hrs. He finished as number 6,954 out of almost 40,400 starters and was ranked 219th in his age group (55-59 years). Clive who had received his place via the club was representing Bridport Runners in this prestigious event. Well done, Clive – congratulations!
Clive’s start today means that he can now close a chapter which he had opened more than three decades ago: It was his second attempt with the London Marathon after entering but unfortunately not finishing the race in 1986. “I had not been near the event since but I am very pleased that, more than 30 years later, I could finish what I started”, commented Clive after the race.
Clive also used today’s race to raise funds for the official charity of the marathon 2017, ‘Heads Together’. This charity aims to tackle the stigma that still exists around mental health issues and also help people find the mental health support they need, when they need it. Clive’s fund raising page ist still open for donations.
