Just 2:47:58 hours… Lucy Charles ran an impressive marathon today in London. Yesterday, before the race, Charles mentioned that she didn’t have the prettiest track record when it comes to the London Marathon: after a DNS due to injuries both in 2016 and 2017, and a DNF in 2019, Charles now finally finished the event. And most of all, she put together an incredibly strong race.

“Finally managed it,” she states on Instagram. “London Marathon 2021 completed it mate. Went out fast (standard procedure); lost my shoe at mile eight; had a toilet stop at Mudshute; smiled for 26.2 miles (42.2 km, ed.) and ran 2:47:53. Now time for some recovery and rest.”
