Michael Bamford

Congratulations to Michael Bamford - ELR Club Runner of the Month for October 2017.

Michael completed the famously hilly Beachy Head Marathon (his marathon debut) on 28th October, in a time of 4.29.57 - 394th out of 2,156 finishers. The previous weekend he was 1st in his age group (6th overall) at the Castle Ashby Duathlon (sprint distance) and on 8th October at the Plymouth 10k set a PB time of 42.46. A keen cyclist, he has competed in many other Duathlons including the recent Greenwich Tritons Relay and Descente London Duathlon. Michael is a regular at the Chingford League and ELVIS races and assists other runners at the Wednesday club run. He also takes an active part in the ELR social life, travelling to various events including the Colworth weekend with his club mates.

Michael after the Beachy Head Marathon.
