Lyn and Chris McDonnell ventured up to Lancashire on Sunday for The Inskip Half Marathon.
Colin Green went in the other direction and ran the Folksworth 15. Colin said the event was oversubscribed early on and was full with 500 runners. It was dry and mild and very very windy, a 2 lap course with 3 good hills X 2 of course – but the wind was something else. It is a good event and obviously very popular – there was much talk of preparation for the London and Edinburgh marathons as it fits in well with training. Colin found it very hard, particularly when running (sic) uphill against the wind with a slow crowded start.
Colin’s time by his own watch was 2.33.50
