Friend of mine did it. Finished in 4:00:05 he's gutted to be so close to sub 4 but not get it. Said conditions were very hard.


I'm wrong it was actually 3:00:05 and he's gutted not to go sub 3.

Savage performance by Bingo. Followed him on the tracker..he put the shoe down to nip under 3!
Conditions looked very hard.
Great performance by Mohammed Farah despite all his medical conditions  ::)

Fair play to Keitany to go for it...legs were shot, how I know that feeling blowing black smoke in a marathon ..pain!

Seen Bingo at 24 miles and he was flying. Brother was doing his 1st and ran 3:45:48. Fecker had only ran a 5k when he moved over here a year ago!!

Heat was unreal, even watching it was a mission.

Great going from bingo in that heat. He had a picture of himself on facebook the other night wearing some sort of recovery aid machine on his legs. It must have worked!

I know a fella who blew up at 22 miles with heat exhaustion and medics wouldn't let him continue. Gutted especially as had raised a good few quid for charity.

Two marathons lately, Boston and people were suffering from hypothermia and today in London heat exhaustion! Bad enough doing it without the elements making it hundred times worse

That would be sickening alright.  I remember seeing a runner about 500 yards from the finish at Dublin Marathon in 2014 being pulled off the course after collapsing. She was pleading with the medics to let her finish but they were having none of it.

The BBC do a fantastic job covering the London Marathon. Even after the elites are finished I love hearing the stories about some of the ordinary runners.
Pity RTE don't do similar with Dublin Marathon.

1st 40 plus.

Stephen scullion was 12th and beat all the british bar farah. He has a lot in him that fella if he gets his head right so good to see him performing.

Gnr very like that too ll. I suspect rte don't quite have the budget.
