The day of the Brighton marathon saw over 20,000 runners take to the roads on the hottest day of the year. Of those, 3 were from Great Yarmouth Road Runners.

The course took the runners through the town before heading up the cliffs and back down again, and after some twists and turns finishing in front of Brighton Pier supported by an enthusiastic crowd.

Andrew Dormer, running his first marathon, was the first from the club to finish in an amazing 3:28:55. Nadine Heseltine managed to sneak under 4hours with a time of 3:59:14, and Jane Trudgill finished her first marathon in 4:14:26. Not put off by the heat, all three are looking forward to their next marathon!
