Galloway Harriers running club member Kerry Maxwell from Gatehouse of Fleet kept her fellow Harriers glued to the internet last Sunday as she competed in the Virgin London Marathon.

Runners in the London event can be tracked throughout their run and it was great to see Kerry’s fantastic race.

She set off at 10am with the 37,000 other runners and kept an incredibly steady pace through the whole race. Her natural running ability, coupled with all the hard training she has put in, really paid off and she crossed the finish line in 3hrs 34min and 16sec, earning 98th place in her category.

It is her fastest marathon time and her Galloway Harriers’ team-mates are very proud of her. Kerry looks set to have a brilliant running year after such an incredible start.
