On the same day as the Uckfield Runners Club were well represented in the Brighton Marathon (April 9th), a group of five runners from the Club were pounding the streets in the Paris Marathon.
It was a particular landmark run for Uckfield Runners Club Chairman, Peter Wilkes, who was competing in his 40th and final marathon. On a very warm day in the French capital, as it was in Brighton, Peter finished in a time of exactly five hours.
Congratulations to all the Uckfield Runners in Paris and Brighton.
And good luck to Tara Johnson and Tara Tywman from the local Club, and everyone else from the Uckfield FM area, who will be competing in next Sunday’s London Marathon.
