Rome Marathon World Cup

The weekend of June 25th-26th saw the British Marathon Team fly out to Rome to compete in the Marathon World Cup. From Elmbridge we had Ben Brown racing in the Mens K1 over the distance of 35km. Ben took the Gold in the 32ºC heat and said “The river was perfect for the savvy Elmbridge racers, plenty of flow gave opportunities to those who knew how to take them! We tend to have better races in more challenging conditions; at Elmbridge the river knowledge is taught from a very young age.” (read Ben’s full report HERE)

The Marathon World Championships is on this very course next year. The British team scooped a total of 5 golds in Rome as well as a couple of 3rd places, all in all a great start to the international Marathon season!
