London Marathon team results and England selection for Jonathan Poole

Serpentine men's team place third in the London Marathon team results, with our women's team placed 12th with Jonathan Poole selected to run for England.

England Athletics have now announced updated results for their marathon team event, which was incorporated into the Virgin Money London Marathon, and selected Jonathan Poole to run for England. 


In the mens event, the Serpentine team of Jonathan Poole (2:21:31), Andrew Greenleaf (2:27:42) and Hussein Ahmed (2:29:44) are in third place with a combined time of 7:18:57, just behind second-placed Kent AC with Belgrave in first place. 


Whilst England Athletics are currently only announcing the top eight teams, our calculations suggest that in the women’s event the Serpentine team of Sophie Grant (3:09:18), Alexandra Cooke (3:10:47) and Lauren Roe (3:12:21) are in 12th place with a combined time of 9:32:26. 


Following these results, Jonathan Poole was amongst those selected by England Athletics to represent England at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on 22nd October 2017.  Many congratulations Jonathan!
