The Big Half – Half Marathon-man Nigel Evans tackles another 13.1 miles at the big new London event

This year I have been trying to do more events that I have not done before as I have a tendency to book the same ones, so last year when I saw there was going to be a New London Half Marathon I thought great and booked it. It appeared to be a nice run […]
