Sarah Marzaioli joins the 100 Marathon Club

Ask anyone that has completed one and they’ll tell you the same thing. Running a Marathon is tough. 26.2 miles. It will test you both physically and mentally.

So running 100 is just mind-boggling. That’s a feat our very own Sarah Marzaioli achieved at the weekend. Sarah had hoped to complete the century in London next month. Rather than mope around for the weekend she laced up her trainers and completed the Moyleman Marathon on Sunday.

It just so happens to be one of her favourites. A memorial race for a local runner which is staged over the beautiful South Downs around Lewes.

If achieving 100 Marathons wasn’t special enough, it’s even more an achievement for Sarah who didn’t even take up running until her early 50s.

Among the century there have been 15 London Marathons. At the age of 66 she broke 4 hours for the 6th time around the capital. Amazing!

Last year she finished 5th in her age category at London. The same place Mo Farah finish in his bracket #JustSaying.

Her remarkable journey has taken her all around the World. Running Marathons in Vancouver, Rome, Paris, Istanbul and New York.

She’s even done some Ultra Marathons including the 65 miles from London to Brighton. 82 miles in 3 days to complete the Druid Ridgeway Challenge.

Sarah has been raising money for the RNLI, so please, if you have not done so already, consider making a small donation for this incredible woman.


I should give a mention for Kim Callow as well. Just 7 days after completing the Lydd 20, he also ran the Moyleman Marathon this weekend. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t his 100th though. Come on Kim, keep up.

If anyone took part in any races over the weekend that I missed then please drop me an email simon@runnur.co.uk and I will add you to this report.

Finlay braves injury to land Kent Championship

11-year-old Finlay Goodman continued his excellent progress by winning the Year 7 Kent Schools Championship. The 3km race was held at the Royal Military School in Dover.

Finlay’s win was made even more remarkable by a nasty accident on the start line where his foot was spiked. He went on to win the race and then attend the hospital afterwards to get the injured treated.

In warmer climates our Chairman Nick Brown won the MV60 category in the El Palmar 5km, completing the hilly course in an excellent time of 20:35. Helen Brown was 2nd in the FV50 category in 24:56.

Sarah Marzaioli completed her 96th Marathon at  the Doughnut Dash at Walton on Thames. Sarah has targeted London as her 100th Marathon and is currently raising money for the RNLI. If you can spare a few pounds towards this great cause and amazing achievement that would be very kind.


On Sunday 5 members completed their England Athletics Run Leadership courses. Darren Barzee, Nadia Winborn, Neil Jeffries, Anthony Gardner and Simon Linklater will all be on the coaching rota in the following months.
