From Barnstaple to Berlin with some hills in-between
Heading to Nottingham last weekend for the Robin Hood half marathon, and proudly flying the flag for Skegness and District, was Robbie Gee. Despite the wet conditions and hills which Rob described as doing 2 Bolingbroke 10ks back to back, Rob had a fantastic run, finishing in 2hours 21minutes.
Meanwhile Guy Hatton headed to Berlin to take part in the Berlin marathon, a citywide road race where professional athletes and amateur runners jointly participate.
It was only a week since Guy’s last marathon in Hull but he still finished in a brilliant 5hours 6minutes. Guy is aiming to complete 100 marathons, this one marks his 53rd!
Back in the UK, Emmajean and Jimmy Hearn headed to Barnstaple for their marathon, hosted by the North Devon Road Runners. They had a fantastic race and both bagged PBs; Jimmy 33 seconds and Emmajean 7 minutes. Emmajean said: “We are really pleased especially one week post 100k at equinox24. It rained, was windy and would have been lovely scenery if we could have seen it. “But despite the weather it was well organised with tea, coffee and a cheeky prosecco at the end.”
