Monday 2nd January 2012 – Central Lancashire Half Marathon


Race report from OAC’s Tom Paget:

I have set myself a target for 2012 of running a half marathon every month, so I thought I’d get off to an early start with the Central Lancashire Half. I was very pleased to finish 51st in 1.29.22, a pb, and finally dipping under the 1hr 30min barrier. Howard Jeffrey finished 55th (1.30.06).

The race was won by Paul Lockwood (Wakefield Harriers) in 1.11.39 and the first lady was Joasia Zakrzewski (Dumfries R.C.) who finished seventh overall (1.18.14).

Results from ukroadraces.

Incidentally, although I have been trying to find a half marathon for every month in 2012, I’ve still got quite a few gaps in the calendar, so if anyone can recommend any “must do”, quirky or interesting half marathons, I’d be very grateful.

Thanks,

Tom Paget.

    Jolster, Norway in July? I, of course, have no experience of this; I was just seeing what races might be on when i’m in Iceland in the summer.

    Tom – I’m doing Liversedge. Tamara – Jolster sounds lovely, but perhaps a bit too far away!
