World Marathon Majors....completed it!

Redditch Editorial 19th Nov, 2019   0

REDDITCH STARS duo Stephanie Cox and Jo Scott are part of an elite group after completing the New York Marathon.

The town duo can proudly say they are among the ‘Six Star Finish’ club after their efforts in the USA completed a clean sweep of the Abbott World Marathon Majors – Tokyo, Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago and New York.

Cox and Scott earned themselves a place in the marathons via a ballot or by raising funds for a charity place.

The pair started their marathon journey in 2016, with their first major being London, followed by Berlin in 2017, Tokyo and Chicago in 2018, Boston in April this year and finally New York City in early November.

Look out for the Standard’s Christmas issue in which we will have an in depth look at the duo’s marathon achievements.
