Shell four villages half marathon – all over now!

Shell four villages half marathon – all over now!

Hope you enjoyed your run today — some really strong performances out there and some good improvements. I could only watch as Ivan and his mate Graham disappeared into the distance, the Big Run preparation is obviously going well!

Full race results are over on the old site. Mick Hall’s event photos are here.

We’ll get a list of everyone’s time and positions when we’ve got a bit more time. Adair comfortably made the Top 100. But some of these fast new lads will hopefully be chasing his tail before too long! Was it Chris BH’s first Half? If so a pretty impressive debut. Ed, Ian, etc., we already know you’re good. Further down there were some strong runs — I saw Albert and Betty both looking good at the end. Lots more.

More importantly I know lots of you gave up a shot at the race, to help out behind the scenes. Thanks all, all of us in the green vests wouldn’t have been able to do it without you. As ever, there was a good vibe after the race. People enjoying a well run race once again. We must be doing something right!

We’re getting some great reviews over on the Runner’s World site. It’d be great if we could welcome some new folk along to the club as a result of getting them interested.

    Im trying your blog as i’ve been unsuccessful in trying to get hold of someone from the club regarding the half on Sunday via email and phone.
    I am yet to receive my chip and number and am now a little concerned thats it not going to turn up. Can someone please advise me what to do if this hasn’t come by race day and possibly provide me with a number or contact details for someone who i can speak to.

    1. Hi Matt – can you confirm you still haven’t got it? Fingers crossed, I think you should still be ok. Although the packs were all sent a week ago, they have been delayed by the weather – mine only arrived Sat, my wife’s Monday. If not I’ll contact our numbers person and see if we have any contingency.
