Marathon Result

All three Old Bucks competing in the London Marathon finished the course. Congratulations to Steve Gunn (1975), Glen Turner (1981) and Stuart Colley (1985). All had very respectable times, but the fastest of our brave trio was the youngest. Stuart finished just 6 minutes short of the 3 hour barrier.

Glen (see above) tells me he is shortly off on a relaxing holiday to recover, whereas for Steve it was straight back to work on Monday morning.

All three of our lads enjoyed their day and made a tremendous effort with the fund raising. Their combined total so far is £6,342. If you want to boost that total the links to their fund raising pages are still operational further down this page.

For the record, their times were:

Stuart Colley: 3.06

Steve Gunn: 4.31

Glen Turner: 4.38

Finally, I can reveal that the winning house was Hainault.



Steve Gunn (1975) reckons his peers from BHCHS will be surprised to learn about this. He told me that he left school with no sporting pedigree, and he maintained total physical inactivity until 2003 when he decided to enter a half marathon. His only full marathon so far has been the London Marathon in 2006. Steve will be raising money for two charities with significant personal meaning for him: Beating Bowel Cancer (his father died from this recently) and Heart UK (his wife has had serious heart problems).

Glen Turner (1981) is a relative novice at marathons. But he has been an active competitor in 10k races for a number of years in Manchester and London. Glen will be raising funds for Amnesty International. Glen tells me his ambition was to complete a marathon by the age of 40 - he can achieve this (at least while he is still 40) if he succeeds on 17th April.

And the youngest of the trio, Stuart Colley (1985), is an experienced marathon runner and comes from a family of runners.  Stuart is supporting the St Clare Hospice, where his late father spent his final weeks before his death from pancreatic cancer five years ago.
