Virgin Money London Marathon 2019
Congratulations to Paul Banaszkiewicz, Alan Cooney, Paul Harnett, Robert Jordan, Ann Oldroyd, Pete Thompson, Jonathan Waite and Caesar Wek for running the London Marathon on Sunday 28th April 2019! We would like to especially congratulate Paul Harnett on his finishing time of 5 hours 30 minutes whilst running in ski boots, this was also a New World Record! The Joint Action runners raised an amazing £14,000. Thank you so much for participating to raise the much-needed funds for Joint Action, the only UK charity that specialises in raising and distributing funds to the entire musculoskeletal spectrum.
I’m Pelvis and Acetabular Reconstruction at King’s College Hospital, London. At the London Marathon I broke the Guiness Book of world records or running a marathon in ski-boots, with a time of 5 hours 30 minutes 27 seconds. I raised over 7 thousand pounds, via my fundraising website, skibootmarathon.com. On the day of the big race, I had a technical glitch with the timing tracker strapped to the side of my ski boots, so it didn’t work, this meant I had to wait an agonising 3 days until the official result was announced. Thank you so much to all those who sponsored me.
I was really worried about getting a femoral neck stress fracture, most of my colleagues including me have a seen one or two patients over the years with a femoral neck stress fracture running the London marathon, so it’s not that rare, but lucking my hips held up just fine, I’d run a few more miles each week in the boots, up to 20 miles three weeks before the race. A couple of time I ran 8 miles to work in my ski boots through Hyde Park and past Buckingham Palace, I certain got a few weird looks, but sometimes people didn’t bat an eyelid, ‘ just another weird thing in London ‘. The race mostly fun, towards the end, my proximal medial tibial plateau was hurting a lot, and I was imagining the bone stress reaction on the T2 MRI while I was running. A few miles later I was sure I had a 2nd meta-tarsal stress fracture (a Marchers’ fracture!), I thought to myself “if that’s the only injury I get, I’ll take that in exchange for a world record“. In the end, I just had few blisters, killer thigh pains for a few days, and one very proud 8 year old son.
