David Winch – World Champion!


The word legend is banded about a lot these days and although we are running out of superlatives to describe this man, his achievements continue to be legendary. 


The inaugural AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Championship race was held within the 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday October 3.




David finished the marathon in a fantastic time of 3:33:34 and with it also the title of AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Champion (75-79). This win also puts David 4th on the World Rankings for his age group. 


David has continued to be a fantastic ambassador to the Thanet Roadrunners, wearing our club colours whenever he is racing. Everyone at the club looks up to him and is in awe of his achievements as he proves everyday that age is just a number – a true inspiration. 


I’m sure everyone at the club will join us in congratulating David on his absolutely incredible achievement.
