London Marathon 2015

May 7, 2015 in Recent Highlights by RDTC

The band returned for another year playing at the London Marathon, at our usual post – mile 23, outside the Tower of London.

The fun always starts with getting the marquee up and learning our lesson from last year, we marked the connecting section and beat our own personal best of 26 poles in 18 minutes. The day is always good fun and this year didn’t let us down, entertaining the runners – some of them even joined in – and bringing out some new pieces like: “Manhattan Skyline” (Saturday Night Fever)

This year, some extra encouragement was due as our very own Aaron Uglow (1st Trombone) ran in aid of the band. Looking well at mile 23, Aaron went on to finish in 5 H 23 mins – a great achievement.
