Manchester Harriers Fund Raising Challenge for 2012
~ Wilmslow Half Marathon Sunday 25th March 2012
Well a great start, blue sky’s warm weather and it is still March! We all arrive in good time for a few groups photos and numberous visits to the loo’s before we will make our way to the start line, with our chip’s nicely in place on our shoes to record our course times. Everyone has their club vests on and is off on time and out into the countryside around Wilmslow, lovely lanes and plenty of local support from Macclesfield and Handforth along with Wilmslow members out in force. Weather is getting hotter and hotter and the course has plenty of water dished out by the volunteers, guides and scouts on route.
I was fading fast in the heat and having done a long run the week before for marathon training, but no worries it was a great route and lots of support from club members and friends. I had a few jelly babies near the end and encouraged a lad from Preston on the route and finished in 2hours & 3mins, so number 3 done only 9 half marathons to go!!!!!
A group of us popped to the Ship Inn in Styal for a drink and then over to Nigel’s to Celebrate his birthday, so all in all a great finish to the day!!!!
