Firstly I would like to thank all who volunteer to help out at this years Marathon.

What a great time we had for the second year running doing baggage in the Red Zone.

Because of last weeks events with Lornah coming to Beckton we seemed to now be a very famous Parkrun lol.

Great weather and a great turn out thanks Beckton!
