Well done to all East Cheshire athletes completing the 26.2 miles in the Manchester Marathon on the 6th April. First back for East Cheshire Harriers was Tim Greenald with a superb time of 2.55.18. Special mention to Kevin Jowett after finally getting under the magical 3 hours after several attempts, with a great new PB of 2.56.21. Next back just breaking the 3 hour mark was Chris Swire with a new PB of 2.59.42. Other mentions go to Matt Dickinson (3.13.48), Marcus Gregory (3.16.49) and James Fairfield (3.17.47). Finally, first ECH lady with a fantastic time of 3.23.58 was Michelle Vaughan, which was a new PB.

Quote from Chris Swire regarding him and Michelle:

”I don’t think either of us would have done as well without the shouts of encouragement along the way. Personally, I can’t believe how many shouts of, “come on East Chesh” I heard all around the course; it really kept me focused and I doubt I would have got the Sub 3 hour time I was aiming for without the support”
