TEN Harwich Runners were among the 36,000 runners at the 34th London Marathon.

Rob Reason led the way, achieving a personal best (PB) – a new club record and securing an incredible 80th overall.

Reason went through the halfway stage in a fast one hour, 15 minutes and 20 seconds.

By the finish, he had knocked almost two minutes off the club record he set last year, completing the course in 2h 34m 32s.
