Local man, Shaun Lyon, took part in Berlin's 43rd annual BMW Marathon last month.

Shaun travelled to the German capital to run in the annual marathon on September 25 which follows a looped course that takes in ten Berlin neighbourhoods passing landmarks such as the Siegessäule column, Berlin Cathedral, the State Opera House, and Potsdamer Platz, and starts (and finishes) on Straße des 17. Juni near the Brandenburg Gate.

Completing the race in 2.35.53 with an average pace of 5.52 a mile, Shaun still had energy to pose for a celebratory photo at the Brandenburg Gate.

Congratulations, Shaun!
