British Spartathlon Team News
Congratulations to all our British Spartathlon finishers and all the runners, crews and supporters who made it a brilliant weekend for the team.
Due to the difficulty of this race there were some success and some failures but the British Team recorded an overall finishing rate of 65% which was the 3rd highest country (excluding those with one participant) which was a great effort overall.
The full list of finishers is shown below and the official team race report will follow shortly.
Dan Lawson had an incredible run, leading for large parts of the race before eventually finishing second overall in a sub 24 hour time which was the 3rd fastest British Time of all time.
Some of you may know Dan Lawson works part of the year in India for The Organisation for Social Change, Awareness and Responsibility (OSCAR). It is a not-for-profit organisation which provides high quality football coaching to underprivileged boys and girls in Mumbai and across different areas of India. OSCAR runs a unique programme that not only teaches sport to children & youth but also helps them to understand the value of education.
