#teameye are incredibly proud of all of our marvellous marathoners who ran the London marathon on Sunday. For some their first marathon, for some their fastest, for others raising funds for wonderful causes. To top it off, a 21 year club record broken by James Borrett in tremendous style. The support by our #teameye marathon marshals and #greenarmy crew was superb, cheering on our runners at several points around the course.
Now, when do entries open for next year….
Well done all!

Results – Chocathon run (Northampton), 16/4/17 – Mike Wright (30.2 miles) 5:37:39, Laura Whitton (26.2 miles) 4:01:10, Lee Whitton (17.25 miles) 4:01:26, Diane Constable (17.25 miles) 4:51:08.
The Chocathon is not eggxactly your normal running event. Complete as many loops as you wish within the time limit, consume as much chocolate as you wish within the time limit (and there was far more running than chocolate consuming!). Mike went to the eggstreme running his first ultra distance and birthday girl Laura had an eggceptional run, her first over the marathon distance. Super eggstravagent medals for our #teameye runners too, and eggcellent support from the cracking #greenarmy too.
Well done all!
