Ian Harding was the leading Morpeth Harriers finisher in
the Virgin Money London Marathon
on Sunday 23rd April 2017.
Harding ran sensibly throughout, to finish 71st in 2hrs31m01s, which was agonisingly thirteen seconds
adrift of his personal best for the distance.
Three places behind Harding was his Morpeth Harriers club
colleague Ady Whitwam, who posted a time of 2hrs31m16s.
Other Morpeth Harriers performances in the event came from
Andrew Lawrence (556th) 2hrs45m08s, who subject to ratification,
broke the World Record as the Fastest Vegetable, dressed as a Carrot,
Lorna MacDonald (1,823rd) (56th Lady) 2hrs59min24secs,
and Catriona MacDonald (3,171st) (195th Lady) 3hrs11min01secs.
