Helen Vizard finished the 10k in 54:58 “After a long walk to what I thought would be a start line the horn sounded. I continued to walk as the crowd of people in front of me left me no choice. Eventually I realised there was no starting timing mat, so started to work my way […]

Jackie Kent returns to the Bracknell Half Marathon

I haven’t run the Bracknell half marathon for two years as it has been too close to London marathon, which I ran in 2016 and 2017. This year, I didn’t run London so Bracknell was back on the cards! Having had knee trouble and time off from running, I had got my distance back but […]

Fleet Half Marathon – consolidated SJ results and highlights

Andrew Brooks – I always enjoy the Fleet Half Marathon so I was quite looking forward to the re-arranged event (full respect to Fleet AC for re-arranging the event).
