The Outer Hebridean Isle of Lewis was the destination for GRC's Nev Chamberlain to run the Stornoway Half Marathon. The race which was held under cloudless skies started and finished alongside the town's inner harbour and was roughly 50/50 tarmac and trail firstly taking the runners around the town's streets before heading into the beautiful country park surrounding Lew's Castle.

The steepest gradients of the undulating course we're in the second half but at least it also offered some shade which was totally absent for the first 7 miles. Nev's finishing time of 1:49:51 placed him 64th of almost 200 finishers and has set him on his way to complete the Heb3 race series of half marathons held on different Hebridean islands over the coming months.
