Amazing Marathons in 2011

Well here they are...the 2011 Pocklington Runners' marathoners...and what a fine bunch they are....

Pock Runners' marathoners

Listed below are (nearly) all the runners and riders for marathons that Pocklington Runners are taking part in during the early part of this year....although the majority are heading for London with the quirky exception of Mr Pullon, who has opted for the lure of Halstead and Essex! Charlie Hope is running Edinburgh; Simon Rycroft and Helen Reevell are doing Windermere and Richard Ginn is doing two, just to be clever.

Debbie

Debbie Cahill

Debbie's running London this year and is raising money for the very worthy cause of Help for Heroes. This will be her third marathon in total. She did her best marathon time in Dublin where she gained a PB of 4:03 so will probably be keen to try and break the four hour mark this time round.

Mike Pullon

Yes, Mike's been torn away from the bright lights of our capital city and tempted away to take part in the Halstead & Essex Marathon instead, where he's raising money for Shelter. He's run five marathons in the past and gained a brilliant PB of 3:26 at Mablethorpe. From Mablethorpe to Essex....Mike really knows how to live! Sponsor his efforts at www.justgiving.com/Mike2011.

Richard

Richard Ginn

Not satisfied with just one marathon this year, ultra-marathon man Richard is going for two (that we know of) and is taking on London and Edinburgh. His PB of 2:56 gained in Edinburgh is pretty impressive.

Simon

Simon Rycroft

Simon's running Windermere....which will be his third marathon and is chasing a PB of 3:22....doubtful on such a hilly course so he's going to try for good for age later in the year when he's running something a bit flatter.

 

 

Steve

Steve Fletcher

Steve is running London for Diabetes UK and although he doesn't have an online sponsorship site, he probably wouldn't object to you pressing cash into his hand! He's run four marathons before with a PB of 4:53 gained at Lochaber. Good luck Steve.
