Lanzarote marathon 2018 all done. I would think the best weather conditions of my 3 Lanzarote marathons & my worst result but as the marathon logo says never give up & I wasn’t going to so after unsuccessfully trying to shake off what I thought was a 24hr bug just lingered so an eventful pre marathon night no breakfast and a lot of trips to the toilet it was never going to be a fast race..
3:30:04 I think.
race report to follow but for now plenty of performances out there to applaud.
Gary Ohanlon while not hear this year still holds the course record.
