Stratford headmaster runs in Venice Marathon





AROUND 8,000 runners took part in the Venice Marathon including King Edward VI headmaster, Bennet Carr, who completed his first marathon in 3 hours 52 minutes.

While Venice is one of the most scenic marathons in the world, Mr Carr, didn’t get to enjoy the backdrop as he was concentrating on maintaining a steady pace and ensuring he took on food and fluids at the right intervals.
