Among the tremendous local runners who overcame the punishing heat to finish the weekend’s London Marathon was a Leighton 56-year-old who has declared: ‘That’s enough for me!’.

Haydn Jones has called time on his marathon running after his 13th London event, claiming that the event’s last six miles were as tough a challenge as he has ever faced.

“It was so tough out there,” he said. “Well done to everyone who managed to finish because those last six miles in that heat were very challenging.”

Despite the conditions, Haydn kept up his pace time for the first 20 miles, but the rest of the race took its toll as he finally crossed the line in a still-very-credible 3hours 48minutes.

“That’s enough for me,” he said. “I have really enjoyed running marathons and have completed 13 in London, with my best time in 2003 of 2 hours 53 minutes. But no more!

“I will still carry on running but will be sticking to shorter events! I look forward now to watching other runners complete the London marathon next year.”

MyWelshpool would like to congratulate all those runners who completed the London Marathon and raised thousands of pounds for worthy causes in the process.
