A new world record was set, a 102 year old man completed the race as the oldest finisher ever and even Olympic champion Mo Farah was there - finishing 4th in his final professional race (congrats Mo!), but OUR heroes of the day were five incredible supporters who between them raised over £5,400 for Open Arms!
