Report from Sara Elliott:
The 2016 Brass Monkey half marathon lived up to its name yet again on Sunday in freezing temperatures. Thankfully there was no repeat of last year’s black ice issue, thanks to some great gritting, and it meant conditions were pretty much perfect for this flat, fast course.
It’s notoriously difficult to get a place in this popular race and as a result there was a pretty small group of black and whites-Billy, Mark Hall, Scott, Gemma and me. (Jamil being 2nd claim OAC).
Anyway, some super results with Scott home first for Otley in 1:10:25 (new PB), Mark Hall 1:16:43 (1st V55), Sara Elliott 1:39:35 (PB), Andrew Rayner 1:53:42, Gemma Harrington 1:55:14 (PB). See full list of results here
Jamil finished 4th in an amazing 1:09:05, Well done everyone!!
