The Virgin Money Giving Mini London Marathon is the official British Athletics 5km road championships for young athletes aged between 11 and 17.
This year’s Virgin Money Giving London Marathon saw 1056 youngsters run the last 5km of the main marathon course. Runners finished in the Mall just ahead of the elite marathon runners.
Team Hounslow were represented by 16 young runners and had some outstanding results.
The top performances of the day were by Jonathan Bartholomew who ran the under 15 race in 17.11 finishing 102nd.
A huge congratulations goes out to all the young runners that took part, who all received a marathon medal, goody bag and finishers t-shirt.
