Jamil goes long…no stopping that man!
Having gained a reputation as a specialist at the shorter distances, I decided to have a go at another half marathon, my first since Ackworth in 2007. Was slightly apprehensive about the step up in distance but I was pleased to knock 29 secs of my personal best finishing 17th in 70:26.
The Wilmslow Half Marathon is a great race with a quality field and great support from the locals. The race winner was Ugandan Ben Siwa from Kenyan based Team Run Fast in 64.57. The female winner was Kenyan Perendis Lekapana also of Team Run Fast in a course record 71.24.
