Millard’s Marathon Masterclass

It was a massive weekend for Tom Millard as he ran a superb 2:28:08 at the Wrexham elite marathon held in Chester. With a high quality field, a fast and flat looped course and ideal conditions, Tom was able to capitalise  and despite a minor scare with cramp in the closing stages, held on to run a time that ranks him 4th in the UK for his age group. Tom finished 33rd overall, a fantastic achievement in a race where the leaders in both the men’s and women’s races ran Olympic qualifying times.
