On Sunday 26th April five Magherafelt Harriers joined nearly 40,000 people in competing in the Virgin Money London Marathon.
The field was packed with elite runners , fund raisers , amateur runners and celebrities and with hundreds of local runners from the province in the line up our runners where in good company .
Darren Church proved once again that he is on top of his game with a storming run in a PB time of 2:57 a super effort from a supreme athlete .
Coach Francis Stewart blighted with injuries leading up to this event dug deep to register a great time of 3:22 . Brilliant effort from Francis who is committed to his personal training and to that of the club .
