Lara Bromilow’s personal best of 2:56:17 in the 2019 London Marathon was due for an update this year. Unfortunately, an injury picked up a month before the London Marathon in October meant she could only use that run as a training exercise.
She entered the Valencia Marathon in the hope that all the training miles she has covered this year would pay off. The weather for the race was breezy with a temperature of 12C. She covered the first half in 1:25:17 and was less than a minute slower for the second half to finish in 2:51:29
Her result takes her to third place in the MMK all-time rankings behind Michelle Lee and Imogen Thornburgh.
