Horsham Joggers’ finest faced the test they have been training for all winter - the London Marathon.

The conditions were near perfect and the local runners did not disappoint. Neil Boniface selflessly paced Matthew Anstee Brown to 2hr 53min, Lorraine Bulbeck, who a year ago had never ran more than 5k, finished in an amazing 5-31.

Mother and son, Emma and Zak Comber finished in 3-53 and 3-52 respectively, with Finbarr Cotter in 4-24, Fiona Clifton, on her marathon debut, making 4-55.

Other times were: Deb Weller (5-37), Helen Taylor (5-43) and Amanda Avery (5.51).
