In the first wave of the day, starting on The Mall, Chris Loudon was first to cross the Finish Line by Buckingham Palace. Representing Cambridge Harriers in Greenwich, he said afterwards: “This is the fifth time I’ve done the event, but the first time I’ve finished first, so that makes it special. It’s a great course, great scenery and it’s always very well organised – a great race. It’s a good one to go for a PB too.”
