NEW MARATHON WORLD RECORD – On a glorius Sunday morning ib Berlin, the greatest marathon runner od all time became that bit greater. Already the winner of his past eight marathons – including Olympic gold in Rio and three victories in London. The only thing to elude ELIUD KIPCHOGE was DENNIS KIMETTO’S world record of 2 hours, 2 minutes and 57 seconds in Berlin in 2014.

KIPCHOGE 33, did not just beat it, he destroyed it, shattered it. Put it so far out of reach it is difficult to envisage anyone surpassing it for years to come. His incredible winning time was 78 seconds better than the previous mark – the first time the world record had been lowered by more than a minute in a race for 39 years and the single greatest improvement for 51 years.

JOY OGUNLEYE AND REBECCA JEGGO On Saturday 8 September both JOY and REBECCA had an amazing experience competing at the Great North City Games.

The event was held on a purpose-built track at the iconic Gateshead quayside. This included some of the top athletes from the UK as well as the Diamond league circuit, with whom JOY and REBECCA stayed at the same hotel as on the Friday.  They enjoyed dinner with GB sprinter RICHARD KILTY, before meeting others including MO FARAH and GREG RUTHERFORD. Both REBECCA and JOY qualified for the event based on their performance at the English Schools championships in July and competed over the unusual distance of 150m straight.
In the first heat REBECCA finished second in a time of 17.90 qualifying for the “A” final later in the day. In heat two JOY finished third, qualifying for the “B” final with a time of 18:28.
After a short turn around, and in worsening weather conditions, JOY improved her time to 18:27, finishing second in this “B” race. Later in the afternoon after what was a very wet and nervy start line, and on the third attempt after an athlete disqualification, REBECCA finished third in her final in an improved time of 17:76.

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November last year “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.
