Sat 27th Oct         Frankfurt Marathon

Two Harriers made the trip to the German city to run the marathon billed by the organisers as the third fastest in the world. They don’t stop there: It is probably the most atmospheric finish in the world, running on the red carpet into the Festhalle of Frankfurt is for every marathon runner, the finish of his dreams. In the Festhalle every finisher will be celebrated. Hopefully John and Ryan enjoyed the experience.
