Sunday 11th September: Yorkshireman half

Report from Christian Hosker:

I tackled this 15 mile “half marathon” with a view to ticking off a qualifier for the 3 peaks next year. It was hot, hard, hilly work. Dehydration induced leg cramp got the better of me after about 12 miles. Luckily a spectator took pity on me and topped me up with some full fat coke before sending me on my way. I believe Neil Reed, Sarah Richards and myself were the only Black and whites in the half marathon.

Ed Davis was in the full marathon, finsihing 5th in a scorching 3:48. Chapeau again!

  1. Well done all – especially Ed. I’ve never done the half, may have to give it a go sometime. The finishing hill is a thing of beauty.

  2. Well done all. This is as tough as a half marathon gets. Great route and lovely food afterwards. I have never managed the full marathon but it’s on my list of races to do.
