LONDON MARATHON

The 2021 London Marathon didn’t disappoint, either in atmosphere, great running weather or superb results for the K&D team. Rob Michaelson-Yeates finished in a phenomenal time of 2:28:33, coming 61st overall, with Gary Polhill not far behind in 2:35:31, with Danny Malone, Steven Whatmore and Paul Bentley all finishing in under 3 hours. Kate Leeson led the K&D ladies home, finishing in 3 hours and 52 minutes. Special mention also to Jo Tork, who did the Virtual event just weeks after a knee operation, completing the 26.2 miles in a time of 8 hours and 30 minutes, and to Jack Whitehouse who completed the event despite spending a couple of hours in the medical tent just a couple of miles from the end. Full results are below:

Coniston 10k & 15k Trail Races

It was a wet and windy Saturday in the Lakes for the group who travelled there for the Coniston 10k and 15k trail races, with plenty of mud and water out there on the trails too. Great run from Andy Connors who led the K&D men back, despite his “dip” in the stream!
