Results update 14 January 2019 – Brass Monkey Half, Langsett Loop and parkruns

Brass Monkey Half Marathon – 13 January 2019

One of those races that fills up in minutes, you snooze you lose.

With 40mph winds forecast it did not look like a morning for PB’s so well done to James Osborne who wan a PB and broke 80 minutes for the first time and well done to Simon Jennings who also ran a PB.

Wishing Tom and Janet a speedy recovery, Tom pulled up at about 5 miles so thanks to the marshal who drove him to the finish.

Well done to all our runners.
