Berlin Marathon 26th September 2010

Well done to Simon Parkinson for his excellent result at the Berlin Marathon.

‘I finished the Berlin Marathon in 2 hours 51 minutes and 33 seconds. Well under the 3 hours that I wanted to do so am absolutely over the moon. Ran really well and looking at my split times I was consistent from start to finish even though I did start to feel it in the legs about 38K. Fantastic event and would recommend to any Harrier wanting to do one of the marathon ‘majors’. It is a flat fast course and great atmosphere all the way around. Good organisation too(would we expect anything less from the Germans!). It rained all day with cool temperatures so felt just like home!

Having a well deserved rest for a few days but will be back for the Gin Pit.’
