|PB for Richard|
Taking part in the half marathon were Joe Clarke and Richard Payne. Both were hoping for personal bests on what is a flat but slightly exposed route. Joe came in less than a minute outside his PB after tiring in the latter stages but still ran a very impressive 1:27:40 and finished in 21st place. Not far behind was Richard running a PB by over a minute and delighted with his result of 1:30:57 and 36th place.
GRC’s only participant in the marathon was Chris Limmer who is focused on the Thames Path 100 race which is now only weeks away. After running a conservative first half he pushed on in the second half to run a faster second 13.1 miles to eventually complete the course in 3:00:46 and finishing in 22nd place.
A really good friendly local event on a super fast course (wind permitting). Definitely one to recommend for those wanting a cheaper local race instead of the more costly big races that take place around the country at this time of year.
