Clare Seeger was 15 years old when she run the first London Marathon in 1981. Although her time of 3hrs 49 mins in only 6 weeks of training was unofficial she was still allowed to cross the finish line. The computer made a mistake on her age and she was in the list of starters only to find out a few days before she could not run because of her age. She still did run and stopped one foot before the finish line but was then told to cross which gave her a recorded time of 3hrs 49 mins.
I was 15 when I officially completed the East Lyme Marathon in Connecticut in 1987. Does this make me the youngest official finisher of a Marathon? I couldn't be the only one. The Marathon race goes back a lot further than computers do and there were a few Marathons that allowed younger runners back then.
well I didthe 1988 milenium marathon when I was 15
the youngest person to complete the london marathon was Ryder Hussey a 13 year old boy from Wales...
