Many runners, supporters, friends and family made it along to the Buckingham Arms after the race to celebrate, commiserate and hear all about the day. The pub kindly gave a gift of a bottle of fizz to the leading Serpie man, Jonathan Poole (whose finishing time of 2:27:52 placed him 14th) and woman, Mariah McConnaughey, who finished in 2:55:40 (32nd woman).

In total, there were 10 Serpie men who finished in less than 2 hours 45 mins (30 in a sub 3 hour time) and 10 women who finished in less than 3 hours 15 mins. Serpie Victoria Carter is now the holder of the Guinness World Record for the fastest marathon run in a martial arts uniform after finishing the course in 3:30:14.

All the Serpie results are here and there are some great photos of Serpies taken by club member Richard Swinford (including this one of Dave Morgan) at
