Double trouble for Welsh marathon runners Mel and chatty Sarah at Abingdon.
Two members of NWRRC took part in the Abingdon Marathon last weekend with Mal Preece running the full distance despite suffering a hip injury shortly after passing the half-way point, which scuppered any hopes of recording a new PB, and Sarah Ferguson Hudson, who ran the last half just to help support her friend but was later reprimanded by an official for chatting too much!
*Mal Preece (*above), he was going well until injury struck.
After the race, Mal confirmed: “I ran The Abingdon Marathon but alas no PB for me today. It was a fantastic flat course. I was on for a massive PB at halfway 3.17, but my hip gave way. I recommend this course however, for anyone chasing a new PB time.”
Sarah added: “I think everyone is aware that I may talk too much, but I think I excelled myself today by being told off by a race marshal for chatting too much whilst running. I only ran the second half to keep my friend Emma Vadheshacompany, as I am doing Marathon Eryri next Sat. I would definitely love to do the whole thing, and such a great atmosphere!
