Many club members ran a unique version of VMLM today (Sunday). Here’s a club member collage plus a larger pic of Tim & Rachel Hirst and Karen Gedge starting their run; Robin Ashe and Bob Paul providing race support.
Many congratulations to you all for your efforts in testing, wet conditions!
Great Barrow half
Today (Sunday) I did my first race since lockdown and first half marathon of the year. We were set of staggered groups of 10 though I then ran solo. It was wet but mild, and there were two big hills, with the last mile on a footpath that puts the path of doom to shame, with 3-4 inches of mud. The course was all signposted and I only went wrong once adding an extra mile, so I finished 14 miles in 2:03, and was second overall. Paul Bird and Sean Symonds also ran the half in 3:47:21 and 2:38:28 respectively. These are monthly events and I’d recommend them – a really nice medal and goodie bag full of lovely snacks.
