Sunday 22nd February – Great North West Half Marathon

Frank_GNW_HalfReport from Frank Beresford: The Great North West Half Marathon takes place in the inspiring town of Blackpool and takes the runner along the sea front.
After not been able to get a place for Snake Lane 10 mile race, I decided to give the Great North West half marathon a go. The course was flat, however the weather was horrible. By about the 7th mile I was not running as fast as possible to get a fast time, but running fast to finish and get warm. I ended the race shivering which is a first! I was happy to finish 3rd in a slow time of about 1 hour 16 min ( The winner finished with a time of about 1 hour 13 min and has 68 minute PB). I was the only Black and White runner. Training for London Marathon continues….

  1. Looks well nasty. Poor old Blackpool never looks its best out of season. That’s why they have the illuminations.

  2. Good time and result Frank. Blackpool is tough when the weather is bad. I had a number but took one look at the forecast and bottled out (a first!). Was spotted on my alternate training run.
