Marlow Half - 6th Nov 2011 - November ROM - Report

An excellent effort this weekend in the "tough aint the word" Marlow Half Marathon. Sitting here with thighs aching, its nice to be able to reflect on a fine, or at least dry morning, which was an ideal, cool temperature for an archetypal autumnal run up and over five of the cheekiest hills this side of High Wycombe.

A very decent BA turn out, with Dave Dixon (15th) once again leading us (and the first Lady) home , Steve Taylor knocking 2 mins off his predicted time, and nice to see Jagjit, Jasvir and Clara at the start. I can see from the results that Liz made it, and  Steve tells me that Mel was out cheering on the course - sorry if I was too busy grimacing and looking at my feet to realise.

In the team event, the BA Men came in 14th (no prizes for that, or for tracking down how many there were...)

BAAC Team Results

Other BA/ex-BA names in the race, Harvey Tate (Radnage10K) ran a very decent 1:37 (we must get him into the club..) and Andy Byerley (11th) knocked 8mins (!) off his PB to win the V40s.

Nice, Full results -
