London ‘Mini Marathon’ 2013

Congratulations to Grosvenor’s incoming Deputy Head Boy Andrew Wright who was selected to captain the Northern Ireland Under 17 team in the ‘Mini Marathon’ race which was a part of the wider London Marathon event on Sunday 21st April.

The race, which was contested over the final three miles of the full marathon course against the backdrop of such famous landmarks as Westminster, Buckingham Palace and The Mall, featured over 200 young athletes from across the United Kingdom, with Andrew gaining selection as one of six members of the Northern Ireland team following his second placed finish at the Ulster Schools’ Cross Country Championships in February.

For Andrew, competing in the under 17 age group at this event for the final time, the race proved highly successful, with his finishing position of 35th making him the first Northern Ireland competitor across the line. 

Well done to Andrew on his impressive performance and we wish him further success throughout the forthcoming athletics season.
