Never has a new Club Record been more deserved that that achieved by Dillon Hobbs in today’s London Marathon when he finished in 132nd place in a time of 2:30:12.
It is a record the previous holder (Tony Lavender – 2:31:17) and I have been waiting since 1991 to have somebody get close to breaking. Dillon has been so focussed in his quest that we can only admire his dedication and he has reaped the reward.
On learning of his loss of record Tony immediately has sent his congratulations to Dillon.
I hope Dillon can allow himself a celebratory toast
Well done young man.
