Milton Keynes Marathon - 2nd May

With marathon season well underway, two members of Great Yarmouth Road Runners (GYRR) took on the challenge of the Milton Keynes marathon on Bank Holiday Monday.  

With a mixture of trail and road it was a scenic course with lots of turns and zig-zagging.  The 6000 runners were rewarded with a victory-lap finish in the impressive MK Dons football stadium.  

Both Darren Honour and Simon Bekker had a strong first 20 miles with the final 6 proving too tough for them to sustain their earlier pace.  Darren finished in 3 hours 36 with Simon following in 4.01.  They were both delighted with their medals and had an enjoyable day.
