Delight and pain of Marathon runners

RUNNERS from the Henley area raised thousands of pounds for charities by taking part in the London Marathon on Sunday.

Dot Adamson, from Binfield Heath, and her son Jack were running in memory of her husband Euan, who died while playing rugby for the Henley Wanderers in 2008.

She finished in four hours and 14 minutes and 30-year-old Jack came home in three hours and 20 minutes.

The duo raised about £8,000 for Cardiac Risk in the Young, which included a bucket collection at Henley Rugby Club.

Mrs Adamson, a former teacher at Gillotts School in Henley, called her race experience “amazing”.
