Report from Mark Hall
Having missed the Brass Monkey half marathon both me and Scott Harrington entered the Inskip half. The day was very cold with a chilling wind. The circuit is described on the entry form as fast and undulating, not sure if these words go together! The race attracted a 500 runner field. Scott is well into his marathon training and packed in 80 miles last week so was running the race on tired legs he still managed to run the race from gun to tape in the lead and comfortably won the event in a time of 70.48, 23 seconds off his PB. I finished 20th, 1st V55 in 77.28. (my last race before my counter clicks on to 57!)
The only negative point about this event is the very poor prize list. I received a bottle of wine for 1st V55 even though the event cost £19 to enter. Finishers received a goody bag with a big bar of chocolate, a hat , bottle of water a medal and a dish of hot pot! why not reduce the entry cost and drop the goody bag.
