2017 London Mini Marathon:

The 2017 Virgin Money London Mini Marathon took place on Sunday 23rd April. The event, held on the same day as the main London Marathon, is the official British Athletics three-mile road championships for young athletes aged between 11 and 17 and is run on a three mile course from Old Billingsgate to The Mall. Previous winners include double London 2012 Olympic gold medalist Mo Farah.

All of the runners representing Wandsworth were fantastic and really showed why Wandsworth is seen as one of the top London boroughs for Athletics. The results were magnificent, particularly considering the race included the best British road racing talent from across the UK.

The U13 Boys won their category, being led home by Jayden Kennedy who finished in 1st place in a time of 15 minutes 57 seconds. In 4 of the 5 other categories Wandsworth finished in the top 5 London Boroughs.
