George, Janet and Marie

Freezing cold, -2 degrees at the start and about 0 degrees at the finish.  No ice underfoot and the conditions were dry with hardly any wind.  The quality of the field was very strong which made for a very competitive race.

Special mention to George Laing who last ran a half marathon 10 years ago, just before a traffic accident which forced him to stop running.  10 years ago George ran 1:40.  Last year George came back to the club and after finding his love of running today he ran an amazing 1:35:56!

The amazing run by Caroline Wheelhouse (1st V55 lady) will rank her 1st V55 lady in the country with her time for Half Marathon.

PB’s for Martin James, David Watts, George Laing, Marie-Louise Taylor, Janet Kerry (despite illness the day before), Phill Whitehead (who had to endure shin pain), and Martyn Walter.  Glynn was pleased to run his best half since 2014.

Special mention to Nicola Devine who came to support our runners.
