Sintons lawyer finishes in top five per cent of London Marathon 2022 runners
A lawyer from Sintons has finished in the top five per cent of runners completing the London Marathon 2022 with a hugely impressive time of under three hours.
Alex Wilkins finished the 26.2 mile route in 2:42:57 – almost two hours less than the average finishing time for the London Marathon of 4:32:39.
A dedicated runner, real estate solicitor Alex competes in a number of races each year, especially half marathons, and took on the London Marathon for 2022 alongside more than 40,000 other runners.
His impressive time puts him among the top 2,000 finishers and the top five per cent of times crossing the finishing line.
The London Marathon, the UK’s second biggest annual road race after the Great North Run, follows a route from Blackheath to The Mall and raises tens of millions of pounds for charity each year.
Alex said: “I had actually hoped to finish a bit faster than I did, but I am really pleased with my finishing time. It was a fantastic day with an amazing atmosphere and something I am so pleased to have been part of.”
Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Alex is known for his love of running and I think his ability is very clear from this amazing time – to be among the first 2,000 people over the line in a field of more than 40,000 is fantastic!
“Through his commitment to fitness, Alex is a very positive influence on his Sintons colleagues. He is always only too keen to take part in physical challenges and activities, and exercise for both physical and mental wellbeing is something we are only too keen to promote among our team.
“Congratulations to Alex from us all on his achievement in the London Marathon – an outstanding performance.”
