A dozen North Norfolk Beach Runners competed in the hottest and most brutal London Marathon on record, when even finishing amounted to heroism for the 40,000 plus who managed it.
They were led home Charlotte Neale (F18-30) in a time of 3.03.41, for 1,368th overall but an outstanding 40th out of 8962 in category.
She was followed by Vinnie Purdy (M40-44), who last year in cooler conditions ran two seconds over three hours, in 3.22.13 for 3,220th place overall and 640th out of 4,044 in category.
Other finishers: Derek Sadler (M 50-54) in 3.29.34 for 346th out of 2,491 in category; Lisa Oakley (F40-44) in 3.43.44 for 224/2,892; Robert Wells (M18-39), 3.46.29 and 2651/11,279; Nick Slade, 3.48.43, for 2,772/11,279, and Euan Prasser (M45-49), 4.01.28 and 1,254/3,552.
