Marlborough Success in Cologne

The Marlborough marathon teams once again took to the streets of Cologne. Joined by 400 other schools teams and 15,000 marathon runners, it was an excellent day for running 26 miles.
Both teams started well, finishing the first leg in the top 15. Gradually we picked other teams off and finished the whole race in 7th & 8th places (out of 400 teams).
The day was made even better when we saw our time; after 10 years of trying, we finally broke the 3 hour barrier. Team 2 ran the brilliant time of 2 hrs, 59 mins and 59 secs. Well done to all runners, you did yourselves and Marlborough proud!
