Nine members of Notfast Running Club took part in the Ikano Robin Hood Half Marathon. This is a very popular race and this year attracted some 6,600 runners.  Held on closed city roads the course is essentially flat but with some leg-sapping sections around the University, Wollaton Park and the Derby Road on the return half.  Always well marshalled and supported by the people of Nottingham it boasts a splendid finish on the banks of the River Trent.

Sunday morning saw good conditions albeit with a fresh breeze at the start.  Most runners seem to prefer these conditions to warm and sunny.  This is how the Notfast contingent fared:

Richard Hallam             1.28.48…overall 246th out of 6,600

Chris McDonnell           1.32.14              391st

Mark Jackson                 1.43.33               1st ever ‘Half’

Steve Hodson-Mackey   1.43.33               PB

Darren Wilkinson           1.51.27

Colin Parker                    1.51.57

Wyn Thomas                   1.54.40

Lyn McDonnell              1.58.14             This is Lyn’s 50th Half Marathon

Steve Needham               2.01.45                PB
