Yorkshire Marathon

 

This weekend saw Martin Howlett and Rachel Malerick take on the Yorkshire Marathon with a flatter route than expected considering that it was Yorkshire and completing the route in a great time of 3:27:43, Rachel and her son Matt completed the marathon in 5:28 having to walk the final 5 miles due to hamstrings, proving how tough these marathons can be even when you have trained so hard.

Oxford Half

Over in Oxfordshire Joanne Reeves and her husband Andy Debnam took on the Oxford Half advertised as running in the city of “dreaming spires” this event taking place like many for the first time in a while, Andy completed the course in 1:54 and Joanne at 2:53.
