Blog / Completing the big six in your seventies

Earlier in the year Jane Gibson told us an inspirational tale of how she took up running at 46 and now was aiming to complete the big 6 marathons aged 74. 

We’re delighted to confirm she succeeded in Boston despite the conditions:

“Well the final six star marathon medal proved very hard to achieve. We had been told about the hills, the short time frame and the final heartbreak hill.  However none of these we noticed as due to the appalling weather we could hardly see in front of us.  Freezing rain all day, 6 elite dropped out as well as over 1000 other runners and 80 admitted to hospital. Well the final six star marathon medal proved very hard to achieve.  We had been told about the hills, the short time frame and the final heartbreak hill.  However none of these we noticed as due to the appalling weather we could hardly see in front of us.  Freezing rain all day, 6 elite dropped out as well as over 1000 other runners and 80 admitted to hospital.”
