A very big congratulations to Thomas Wright (coached by Richard Long) for an amazing achievement in the Zurich 2023 San Sebastián Marathon on 26th November.

Just look at that time: 2h 32m!! Wow. Thomas was up against some of the best international runners.

Thomas finished in 18th place with a big personal best performance beating his previous club record for the marathon. He ran it very sensibly, started steady and came through strongly, his fastest mile was actually mile 24 so a really good way to run it, strong to the end.

Tom is coached and inspired by Richard Long, and also does a lot of training runs solo. This is a perfect example of a great result based on a runner’s dedication and commitment.
