Well done to EUAC's Joe Perkins who this morning smashed his marathon PB by well over 5 minutes in 2:47:50 out in Berlin!
Joe said of his achievement "Hit so many rough patches but what an amazing race to be part of! Very happy to say I've been part of a World Record race!"
Joe finished in 422nd place overall, and 32nd Brit, retaining his place as 3rd best UK U20 marathoner for this year. It also moves him ever closer to Pete Hammonds elusive EUAC marathon record of 2:40:02 from 1997- and with at least 2 years of EUACing left for Joe my moneys on a new record before long!
Wilson Kipsang (new WR holder 2:03) watch out!
