This event is listed on these dates:
Time TBC. Simplest thing to say is - it rained the whole time! Quite enjoyed in strange kind of way, but shoes felt heavy and I seemed to always be going backwards. Its a good course - first half steadily uphill, second steadily down and ending in the Victoria Park athletics stadium. Its unlucky with weather tho - rained last year as well, but not as bad as this time!
A first half marathon
Wet, cold, bleak - I can't say that I enjoyed that. I ran along with Milemonster and watched Nexus Icon disappear into the distance. I was planning to pick it up a bit on the downhill return but by that time I was freezing cold and in the end just jogged back alone through puddles that got deeper and deeper. A PW for me 1:18 but I just couldn't run smoothly when I got so cold - I guess it was hard for everyone as I still ended up 6th.
The marshals did a brave job out on the course for hours in the rain and I was surprised at the amount of supporters at the side of the roads.
NB English Half Marathon - Warrington.
Ran for AYME again - but in absolutely awful conditions (torrential rain) this time.
Time yet TBC ..... as Garmin died at the start (so no splits.
Still pleased to go sub 1hr 40 (1.36.15) in that!
just coming back after 3 and half weeks off...
Very very wet
1.28.46 for me ,a bit heavy legged after running the saab salomon Rivington trail half marathon less than 24 hours before but felt good all the way round and pleased with my time
Awful weather, was hampered by insoles of trainers coming loose, requiring frequent adjusting.
