Congratulations to UCB cornet player, Simon Kahn, who completed the London Marathon today.

His finish time was just under four hours. He posted on his Facebook page:

“Finished! Just beat 4 hours on chip time. Quite tired and stiff!”

This was Simon’s first marathon for 30 years.

Before the race, he posted:

“Nervous! Elites have started, our gate isn’t open yet.”
