Tracy Barlow posted another impressive PB and club record at the Frankfurt Marathon to earn a top 10 finish in the women’s race. Tracy came home ninith in 2:32:05, chopping another 75 seconds from the time she set in April’s London Marathon. Tracy set out boldly and for much of the race was on course for sub-2:30 finish.
“It was a fantastic race and being part of the elite race was brilliant,” she said . “I went out with the pacers for the lead German female but found myself slipping off it towards the latter stages. I felt sick in the last six miles so it was a struggle to keep myself going. The finish line was a welcome relief!”
Mamitu Daska won the women’s race in 2:25:27, just 15 seconds ahead of Germany’s Fate Tola.
