Sunday 21st December 2014 – Portsmouth Coastal Marathon

Nick Hodgkinson reports from the south coast:

A very interesting little pre-Christmas adventure. Run partially on the shingle beach, but mainly on muddy trails close to the shoreline. Definitely not a PB course – I missed mine by nearly an hour and a half.

I can now enjoy being a sloth over Christmas with a clear conscience.

The winner was Anthony Clark in 2:41:33 (Poole Runners), and I was 839th in 4:35:57. There were 1700 starters and 1252 finishers (the tide got the rest).

    Dear Nick I did not know that you were so funny , your report from Portsmouth made me chuckle every time that I would think about your report. For me would be a relief when you will be back for good at our club because I will have at last another slower one to compete with. Well done Nick , you are all right.
