In the 1997 Manchester Marathon I finally achieved my first sub 3 hours run (hence my forum name), which also turned out to be my eventual PB. Unfortunately, I don't have any document evidence to prove I did it (got a nice photo or two though).
I've done the usual internet searches (UK Results and even the Manchester Evening News who I think published the results), but with no luck. I also missed out featuring in the Ron Hill/Neil Shuttleworth book about the history of the Manchester Marathon by a couple of minutes, but did feature in the 1999 chapter of the book (I don't think the standard was as good that years, as I did 2:59!).
Is there anyone out there who has a copy of the results that they don't mind sending to me by e-mail?
