St Elizabeth Hospice is our 2017 Charity
31 January 2017
This year we are supporting the St Elizabeth Hospice in Ipswich whose aim is to improve life for people living with a progressive illness. Their work is centred around an individual's needs, which means specialist support, wherever it is required. They care for people at home, in the community or at the Hospice and help people deal with problems such as pain, anxiety and fatigue, as well as offering practical advice and family support.

Jason Taylor easily wins men's marathon in 3hrs 5mins and Jackie Dockerill completes the ladies' in 4hrs 13mins, just one minute outside last year's time. Bad weather hits on-the-day entries but a good total of more than 600 participants
Having completed the London Marathon in what would have been a record time for the Heritage Course Jason romped home 11 minutes outside the record but some 25 minutes ahead of last year's joint winner and joint course record holder Paul Reynolds who has been out of action recently. Weariness from his London success of 2 Hrs 52 minutes together with the course conditions had played a role this year.
In the Half marathon Alan Smalls who was Joint Marathon Winner last year and who is the Joint course record holder with Paul Reynolds came in just 2 minutes ahead of Mark Harrod in a very fast time of 1 hour 22 minutes.
In the ladies event Clair Miles won looking very fresh in a fast time of 1 hour 30 minutes 35 seconds with last years winner Sarah Dudgeon coming second in a faster time than last year of 1 hour 32 minutes 44 seconds. This had been clearly a battle from start to finish with just 2 minutes separating the runners. Interestingly Sarah, who is in the Guinness Book of Records for the fastest London Marathon in full wedding attire last week became the fastest nurse to complete the London Marathon.
The 6 mile event was won by Chris Miles in 37 minutes 46 seconds and in the Ladies Megan Newson won in 41 minutes 13 seconds. The under 12s winner was Jack Weaver for the second year running who registered a time of 40 minutes 36 seconds.

The 2014 Marathon producing a most extraordinary result with Allan Smalls and Paul Reynolds stealing the show as they crossed the finish line together in a tremendous sporting gesture, both simultaneously breaking the course record with a time each of 2hrs 54 minutes ... a full 10 minutes faster than the record made the previous year.
