Our marathon marvels

While most of us were taking on the Terry 5k, half a dozen brave Wallsend souls were in the big smoke taking on one of the most gruelling but thrilling running challenges of their lives – The London Marathon.

There were first timers, seasoned pros, and even a televised engagement! Massive congratulations to Marie and John (who said ‘yes’ at mile 24). What a great moment and a first in Green and Gold history!

So take a moment to salute the superhuman six:

  • Marie Collinson (4hrs 56)
  • John Dodds (5hrs 10)
  • Joe Colligan (3hrs 21)
  • Alastair Willis ((3hrs 17)
  • Julie Williams (3hrs 48 PB!)
  • Gez Davidson (3hrs 15)

You are all inspirational.
