Duke of Drayton This will be my first half marathon!  I'll be running for Vasculitis charities please F mail me if you would like more info or if you are able to sponsor me.  Thanks....  The run went well and I came in under my target of 2 hours.  Unfortunately, my training has not been up to scratch lately due to family commitments so I paid for it with my calfs as usual.  Even with the crowd support I felt the run lacked a little atmosphere perhaps it was the uninspiring Wolves back roads or the grey weather.  Don't think I'll be doing my first full marathon in wolves I don't fancy the idea of another lap of the same.  I'm sounding a bit down on it but I'm glad I did it and it has raised much needed money and awareness for Vasculitis. Cambridge & Coleridge AC 1:28:43 1:50:53 2:00:00 1:50:53 53.53

HACC Matt Time is from my watch as I was one of the many, including a fetchie clad runner that were patiently waiting at the start board only to reach the start to find we we're a bit late! Impressed with the crowds and drinks, and traffic control on route.  Not sure about the loop around the sponsors car park, but guess have to make up the distance somewhere.  Last climb up to park was hard work and glad I wasn't going around again for the full marathon,  Halesowen A & CC 1:20:09 1:22:45 1:30:00 1:22:45 70.57

ifor Drizzle and little bit of rain. Very urban course with roads that weren't closed. Organisation wasn't amazing.
Took it easy and really enjoyed it. Was pleased with the time but most impressed with the only reasonable amount of effort to achieve it. Super training starts here! Unaffiliated 1:41:25 1:43:26 1:50:00 1:52:35 51.86
Iggle Piggle Drizzle and wet, great half as ever but new start was a bit congested.

upsy daisy It was a little congested at the start, probably because it was a change from last year and we weren't sure what was happening. At least it stopped me going too fast for the first mile. Great to see so much support considering the dreadful weater - shame some people still had to drive in areas where the roads were closed. I thought the marshalls were fab and the organisation excellent. And a brill t shirt too. Northbrook AC 2:10:40 2:11:25 2:20:00 2:17:50 48.94
