Boston Marathon – In 2015 Alex Fleming ran the race of his life! A 3.00.22 time at Manchester Marathon saw Alex qualify for Boston!

After what has been a year of injury and illness, Alex headed off to Boston with his lovely wife Caroline. Alex took the hard decision to pull out of the race just after half way! Alex stood on the start line in Boston and deserved to be there. We all know how hard a decision this will have been for Alex and I for one am proud that he took his place on the start line!

Alex we are proud of all you have achieved and all that you will go on to achieve! Stand Tall our fabulous and most awesome friend!
