CITY of Salisbury’s biggest ever group of runners qualifying for the Virgin Money London Marathon made their mark on Sunday’s outstanding renewal of the race.

The club had 18 finishers, led by the in-form Stuart Holloway, who knocked eight minutes off his previous best at the distance.

World-class professional Daniel Wanjiru won the men’s race in 2:05.48, while the women’s title went to fellow-Kenyan Mary Keitany with 2:17.01.

Among 40,000 starters, Holloway made the most of the cool conditions, going through the 13-mile checkpoint at halfway near Tower Bridge in one hour and 13 minutes. He crossed the finishing on the Mall in an excellent clubrunners’ time of 2:30.41.

James Mills also did well to beat three hours, clocking 2:55.43.

Endurance specialist Phil Smith was timed at 3:04.03, closely followed by Rithy Hy 3:04.49, Nick Cooke 3:15.30, Angus Paton 3:27.38, Andy Budgell 3:38.49, Melanie Murphy 3:44.57, Darren Neale 3:45.26 and Nick Willetts 3:55.48.

In increasingly warm sunshine, James Welsh made the finish in 4:11.00, then came Jane Whiteley 4:28.44, Charlotte Ingram 4:34.32, Charlotte Morton-Haworth 5:06.45, Gavin Barrett also 5:06.45, Chrissy Gorham 5:14.35, Colin Martin 5:24.14 and Marie Manning 6:37.20.

A dedicated quartet of James Ballard, Steve Mitchell, Andy Fallon and Liz Roberts added further to the Salisbury numbers by completing the 26.2 miles in reverse in the official ‘midnight marathon’ running through the night in the hours before the start of the main event.

Meanwhile, closer to home at the Southampton marathon, Peter Callanan recorded a good 3:16.17, with Mike White clipping half a minute off his personal best with 3:30.38. Then came Phil Perry in 3:46.46, Richard Larcombe 3:49.41 and Nick Hudson who reached the finish in five hours despite injury.

In the linked half-marathon, Mike Brewster took second spot in his age group with 1:25.07 followed by Lee Syrett 1:32.00, the improving Jef Hutchby 1:59.47, Hannah Reeves 2:11.21 and Jana Tomblin 2:11.37.

CITY of Salisbury A&RC will have at least 19 runners taking part in today's Virgin Money London Marathon.

Stuart Holloway, Phil Smith, James Mills, Andy Budgell, Jane Whiteley, Colin Martin, John Gorham and Chrissy Gorham will be among what is a record Salisbury contingent at the annual event, first held in 1981.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry along with Olympic rowing gold medallists Helen Glover and Heather Stanning will get Sunday's race underway.

Their Royal Highnesses are spearheading the Heads Together campaign to end stigma and change the conversation on mental health for everyone. They have pledged to make this year’s race ‘the mental health marathon’ and are encouraging runners, whatever great cause they are supporting, to wear the blue Heads Together headband that will be given to them when they collect their race number.

The three Royals will push a giant red button at exactly 10am to send 35 elite men and more than 39,000 mass race runners on their 26.2-mile journey from Shooters Hill in south east London to Westminster.

Earlier, Glover and Stanning, who won the women’s coxless pairs gold at London 2012 and Rio 2016, will start the seven World Para Athletics Marathon World Cup races for wheelchair and ambulant athletes, and the elite women’s race featuring many of the best marathon runners in the world.

Glover and Stanning will then step down from the Start podium and join the mass field on the run from Blackheath to The Mall. The pair are aiming to raise as much money as possible for their respective charities and to beat each other to the finish line.

Stanning is raising funds for the Royal British Legion and Glover for the Brain and Spine Foundation.

Among the elite athletes who will be racing away ahead of them will be Ethiopian distance running legend Kenenisa Bekele, two-time world champion Abel Kirui, two-time London Marathon women’s champion Mary Keitany, and the current men’s and women’s world champions, Ghirmay Ghebreslassie and Mare Dibaba.

Meanwhile, 43-year-old supermum Jo Pavey is just one of 19 of the best British distance runners in the country who will be vying for a handful of coveted places on the nation’s marathon team for this summer’s World Athletics Championships in London.

There will also be more than 70 para-athletes competing in the fourth World Para Athletics Marathon World Cup, including reigning wheelchair champion Marcel Hug and Boston Marathon winner Manuela Schär, plus Britain’s six-times Paralympic champion David Weir who’s going for a record seventh London Marathon victory.

The elites will be followed by thousands of club athletes, fun runners, charity fundraisers, celebrities, politicians and fancy dress costume wearers, including four-time Ironman world champion Chrissie Wellington, TV presenters Sophie Raworth, Mark Chapman and Jenni Falconer, and all three members of the indie-pop outfit Scouting for Girls.
