Philip Wright travelled “Up North” to run in The Yorksire Marathon. This was Phil’s first marathon and he couldn’t have picked worse weather. It rained heavily from start to finish so it wasn’t surprising he slowed down towards but still managed to finish in an excellent time of 3:22:06, which was just outside his target time of 3:20:00.
