James Fourth in Berlin 2018

JamesWhile Eliud Kipchoge was faffing about at the front of the Berlin Marathon field on 16th September, there was a significant run further back as James Graham made a tentative return to competition after a quiet period of racing.

James reported: "The conditions were ideal, sunny, not too hot and with a gentle breeze to help with cooling. I managed 3:21:49, which I was extremely pleased with as I have been struggling with various injuries for the past couple of months."

Despite his race rustiness, James was fourth out of 453 M65s in the race.
