On a bitterly cold April morning, one GYRR ventured to Lincolnshire to take part in the Boston UK marathon.

Ivan Lees is in excellent form at the moment having recently reached the GYRR Silver Standard for his age group. He started the race strong and although plagued with cramps towards mile 20, managed to complete the course in a very respectable and strong 04:14:34, aided by some fantastic family support (no prizes for guessing who owns a loud voice!). The race itself was very well organised and although the rural fields and open landscape would not be to everyone’s taste, Ivan greatly enjoyed the peaceful course.

This was Ivan’s 7th full marathon and he is already considering what his next challenge will be!
