In an unlikely turn of events the Fat Smokers fended off a hard challenge from the Smooth Operators to be crowned Springfield Solution’s RB Hull Marathon Champions.
The Fat Smokers completed the relay race in 4:41:58 and their individual runner, Matt Dass, finished in 3:26:19, giving them a combined time of 8:08:17. Although the Smooth Operators completed the relay race in a quicker time, 3:56:30, their individual runner failed to finish, handing the title to the Fat Smokers.
The winning team were gracious in victory. Tom Such, a member of the Fat Smokers said: “From now on just call us the Fast Smokers!”
Rachael Laughton from the Smooth Operators added: “What an upset! How this has happened we have no idea. We demand a steward’s enquiry!”
The Fat Smokers’ relay team included Tom Such, Dave Bradley, Ian Horne and Lee Spivey. The Smooth Operators consisted of Andrew Ennis, Kristina Dass, Kerry Raper and Rachael Laughton.
