AN OLYMPIC marathon has already taken place despite the London 2012 Games still being weeks away.

Middle Rasen Nursery children completed the sponsored event last Thursday, each member of the group taking part and carrying a hand-made ‘Olympic Torch’.

A number of the children had gone along to see the Olympic Flame in Lincoln and Cleethorpes on Tuesday and Wednesday and therefore were able to share their experiences.

The nursery had the bonus of an impromptu fly past from the RAF.

The children then sat down under a canopy, amid the rain and thunder storm, to enjoy a hearty picnic lunch.
