Results from the Virgin Money Giving Mini London Marathon 2016.
32 young athletes from Richmond were running the last 5km of the marathon course along with 1200 other young Londoners as part of the Virgin Money Giving Mini London Marathon. The athletes, aged 11 to 17 years, who all live or go to school in the borough competed against other London Boroughs in each age category and the overall borough challenge.
After a cold, rainy start - for what was suggested to be one of the coldest London marathon days on record - the weather dried and the sun came out as the young athletes lined up on the course.
The runners started at Old Billingsgate and ran along the embankment, past Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and finished on the Mall. The atmosphere was brilliant, like no other junior race, with spectators out in force lining the route and encouraging all athletes.
Combining the team results, the Richmond team came 5th (subject to confirmation) overall putting them in the top 5 for the last 9 years, a fantastic achievement for the young athletes.
