London Marathon Results

Luke Caldwell claimed the men’s gold in the Scottish Marathon Champs at the TCS London Marathon

And Masters athlete, Sara Green, crowned her remarkable recent achievements by taking the women’s gold with a strong run in London.

Hundreds of Scots made the journey south to savour the renowned atmosphere and the enthusiasm of runners and spectators wasn’t dampened by cool and wet April conditions.

Luke represented Scotland at the 2014 Commonwealth Games on the track and raced for GB and NI last summer in the European Champs in Munich but unfortunately was a DNF on that occasion,

This time he finished sixth in the British Champs event with a run of 2:13.29 in London to head the Scottish podium.

Taking the silver medal will be Weynay Ghebresilasie as the Shettleston Harriers athlete came home in 2:15.41.

Our bronze medallist in the Men’s race is Fraser Stewart of Cambuslang Harriers with the Scottish Half Marathon champion coming up with un of 2:18.34 to improve his PB by six seconds.

Sara had an excellent run as she maintained the kind of performance level that has been the norm this past winter in cross country and road running.

The Gala Harriers athlete clocked 2:44.41 and that will land her another share in our Road Race GP.

Germany-based Scot, Natalie Wangler, is the silver medallist after a run of 2:51.09 and the bronze is headed for VP-Glasgow athlete Rhian Dawes. Rhian was home in 2:52.15.

These medallist outcomes are subject to further checks and confirmation. We will also confirm the team medals at a later stage.

Law and District AAC athlete, Jessica Robson, had a superb run to break three hours with 2:59.27. We make that sixth all-time on a list of UK U20 performances.

It was almost an improvement on close to 10 minutes from marathon debut in Germany last October. Well done to Jess and her coach, Eddie McQuillan!

Commonwealth Games wheelchair marathon silver medallist, Sean Frame, raced the distance for the second time in less than a week.

After competing in Boston last Monday, Sean was back out in the T53/54 event in London and clocked 1:38.43 for 15th place in the race.

Joanna Robertson made her debut and the Aberdeen AAC athlete finished 17th in the Women’s T53/54 in 2:28.16.
