MIDHURST architect Charlie Boher raced alongside professional athletes in this year’s London Marathon, completing the epic challenge in under four hours.

And Charlie, the director of Boher Architecture based in North Street, found himself alongside marathon world record holder Paula Radcliffe on the starting line.

He completed the 26.2 mile marathon in an impressive three hours and 44 minutes.

Charlie said it was an ‘amazing experience’.

He said: “I think everyone should try and do it at least once.

“The crowd along the whole route are incredible and when I heard the odd cheer of ‘Charlie!’ - whether it was for me or not - really pushed me on!

“I left my training a bit late in the day and after the 14th mile I started to feel my legs hurting but once I’d crossed the finish line it was all well worth it, it was the best feeling you could have.

“I was sore the next day but after a long hot bath was back to normal.”

Charlie ran for two charities, The James Wentworth-Stanley Memorial Fund JWSMF and HUGs – Helping Uganda’s Girls HUGS
