THIRTY-FIVE Runners from celebrate the London Marathon Class of 2024

Harlow Running And Tri Club (HRTC) is thrilled to share the incredible achievements of our Harlow Running and Tri Club members, under the guidance of our dedicated coaching team! As the Head Coach Gail, alongside experienced ultra runner Coach Laura, and Andy, our top run leader, they have witnessed the remarkable journey of their runners.

A spokesperson Gail Nicholls said: “On Sunday 21st April, 35 of our club members took part in the iconic London Marathon class of 2024. The majority secured their spots through the ballot, while others obtained charity places. Together, we have raised an amazing amount of nearly £51,000 for our 18 respective charities. This accomplishment is truly phenomenal!

“Our success story began back in October when we welcomed a significant number of newbies who joined our club with the goal of marathon training. It has been a joy to see how our coaching has transformed these young individuals, some of whom had only ever run 5k, into successful marathon runners. Their dedication and hard work have been evident in their Tuesday and Wednesday track sessions, Thursday road running socials, and challenging long-distance runs every Sunday.

But it doesn’t stop there! We have also incorporated other activities such as swimming and strength and conditioning to enhance their overall fitness and performance. Together, as a team, we have ensured that our runners receive comprehensive training and support tailored to their individual goals. It has been an honour to work alongside Laura and Andy, who have played pivotal roles in the development of our athletes.

As the Head Coach, I am incredibly proud of our club’s achievements and humbled to have had the privilege of running alongside our members in the marathon. This success story will be cherished by our club and its participants for years to come.

“Let’s celebrate the dedication, hard work, and triumph of our marathon runners, as well as the unwavering support of our coaching team and thanks to all of our club’s 80 Marshalls who were there alongside cheering us on!”

It was wonderful to witness the transformation of these athletes and to able to cheer them on as part of the 90 strong volunteers from Harlow Running & Tri Club who were marshalling at miles 13/22. Seeing club members along with over 50,000 runners has inspired me to enter the ballot for next year.
