Berlin Marathon 28th September 2008

Thursday, October 2nd, 2008

Before the long drive to Berlin we all shaved our hair and spelt the word Berlin with our lost locks… male bonding at it finest!

dumbo!

the locks!

We arrived in Berlin on Saturday for the expo and registration before carbo packing back at the hotel.  On Sunday Haile Gebrselassie broke another World Record running a  2:03:59 marathon beating his previous record by 18 seconds. Lets hope some of this inspiration rubs off on us on the Indian Ocean next April. All four of us managed personal bests on the day; Guy and Tom finishing with a time of 4:00:14 with Mark and Chris coming in under 5:30:00 respectively.

Thanks to Mark, Chris and Tom who helped to raise money before the race on behalf of Orchid and for organising the trip. If anyone is interested or thinking of running a marathon for Orchid or indeed for our race then please contact us.
