Annabel’s London triumph as she finishes top over 45 woman

ANNABEL Granger produced a superb performance at the Virgin Money London Marathon yesterday.

In arguably what was the highlight from a West Country runner Granger, who is a long-standing member of Bristol & West AC, finished first veteran in the over 45s category in a time of 2hrs 49mins 48secs.

Commenting on social media Granger (pictured above at the 2018 Bristol half) said: “It was great to be racing it (London) again. Lots of support around the course.”

Granger’s time is only 2mins 05secs outside her lifetime best which she set at the same race two years ago and is her third fastest ever, just behind the 2:49.40 she ran in the 2019 Dublin marathon.

Subject to confirmation it will also be the fastest time set this year by a veteran over 45 and amongst the top times by an over 40 as well.
