1985 – 2nd and 3rd in the London Marathon

The 1985 London Marathon saw club members Sarah Rowell & Sally-Ann Hales finish 2nd & 3rd respectively. With Elaine Payne coming home close to the front of the field, Dartford Harriers won the Womens team prize. Dartford Harriers remains the only UK club to have had two runners finish in the top three in the same race at the London Marathon. Sarah Rowell had also come third in the 1984 race which led to her representing Great Britain at the marathon distance in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics where she finished 14th in a time of 2:34.8s.
