Janice Pugh writes, "First of all, can I offer my CONGRATULATIONS to ALL the Middleton Harriers and ALL participants in today's (Sunday's) Greater Manchester Marathon. Another great turn
out in perfect weather conditions (for the runners - a bit chilly for me!) You all put so much hard work into your training and it paid off.....WELL DONE!
And a big THANK YOU, to Julie Jones, Kyrinda Hurst-Moore, Derek Bury, Brian Smith, Alyson Lamb, Colin Carter, Su Wilson and Craig Sutherland who got up early to not only help marshal the marathon, but help raise funds for the club. For every marshal who gave up their time, the club will receive a donation of £20. That's £180 winging it's way into our bank account.
It was a great experience for runners, spectators and marshals alike - we certainly enjoyed cheering you all on (so much so, I have inflamed a tendon in my right hand, I clapped so much!!) and I hope that is the only 'injury' incurred by the day's efforts!"
