Alan Inglis started compiling this list sometime ago and used various internet searches and hard copies of old results. When he reached the stage that he had exhausted all his sources, he approached Alan ‘Pye’ Reid to see what he could add. Pye went through various old race reports and consulted the “Spikes” column in the Hawick News. Alan is sure the list is far from exhaustive and would be surprised if it didn’t contain a few errors due to the passage of time etc.
The list covers from 1970 to 2017 and contains a remarkable 88 marathons run by 26 different athletes. Max Telford ran the earliest recorded marathon in 1970 and the most prolific sub 3 runners are Ian Williams and Gareth Mayze both with 9 runs each. Dave Cavers has the quickest at 2:16:06.
