Athletics / Tue 16th Apr 2024 at 07:51am

THE most iconic well known marathon is nearly upon us. This Sunday, four members of Innovation Multisport will be taking on the 26.2 miles of The London Marathon!!

Andrew Kitson, the club’s coach has run it numerous times and this year got in through getting a Good For Age time. He is using the miles on Sunday as part of his training for an event later on in the year which is an Iron man Distance Triathlon!! He said that training is going well and looking forward to having chocolate once the big event is over!

Simon Jones was the lucky winner in the club’s ballot draw. His training has gone very well, and began back in November 2023. He has continued to stick to the plan than Andrew Kitson supplied for his first marathon, but it won’t be his last as he was also lucky in the New York Marathon ballot that will be on later in the year.

Louise Peacock is running for the Essex Disabled Sports Foundation which provides sports equipment, coaching, tuition and opportunities for disabled children. Having run a couple of marathons preciously, this will be Louise’s first London and will see her complete the Classics collection having already completed Ride London and Swim Serpentine. Louise has said she knows she will get across the line even though training has been tough as she has the support and encouragment from family and club friends.

Liz Coxall is another club member who got a place through the club ballot draw. Liz has trained really well including long runs along the River Stort and with parkrun as part of the route. The plan is to ‘Jeff’ the whole marathon with a ratio of 30:30 run/walk. This method is called Jeffing after the founder Jeff Galloway. Liz is extremely excited amd looking forward to Sunday!

Good Luck to everyone who is running The London Marathon on Sunday, keep an eye out for Innovation Multisport along the route as they will be volunteering and supporting everybody!!
