London Marathon in pictures

If you didn’t get to watch the London Marathon last Sunday, then here’s a chance to take a look at a selection of images from the event.

Injured serviceman Phil Packer walked the 26 miles in aid of 26 charities in a personal best time of 25 hours 55 mintues, a huge improvement on last years 14 days, and a true testament to his determination to inspire others. You can see more images of Phil Packer at the London Marathon and still donate on his website.

Whilst Phil walked on like a Trojan, Wakako Tsuchida of Japan was victorious in winning the London Marathon women’s wheelchair race; “I had images about this race before I started and knew experience mattered. It was always going to be tactical so I was expecting a sprint finish. The weather was bad at the beginning and even though I’ve just won Boston, I really wanted to win.”

Meanwhile in the London Marathon men’s wheelchair race Josh Cassidy from Canada beat four-time winner David Weir (a Brit); “The weather played a part today. I haven’t trained in rain for three months so I didn’t expect the result today, but it means so much to me.”

I know this is cheesy, but I think everyone who took part in the race, from wheelchair users, to children, to those dressed in silly outfits, are all winners. I say bravo!
