A great race, one of my favourites
still looking for the photos but what the heck! A great day out despite siezed up thighs after only 4-5 mile training runs and 20+ years since my last 1/2M. Those Help for Heroes guys were immense !
Really good day !!
I'm tempted withe Dover Half, is it another hilly one?

If it was you I ran past laying on the ground, you didn't look too good
Hope you're feeling a lot better now.
Thanks for the email - it is great to know everything has turned out OK - once the ambulance service pass you on to the hospital it is difficult for us to know what the outcome is.
We have had a lot of emails after the race praising the marshals and drink stations staff - thanks for that - I have passed them on to the people concerned as it does make a difference to those who have given up their day to help.
If you had traouble getting online yesterday to see the photo's my brother apologises as the volume of traffic after my email exceeded the website bandwidth - you should be OK to view the pics now.
could have been! I can't remember!
Worst time ever for me. Focussed more on finishing and surviving than posting a decent time. Despite this, very enjoyable (looking back of course - different at the time).
Organisation, marshalls and whole package very good indeed. Thanks especially to the marshalls, they had to stand the heat too and were consistently supportive and encouraging. Plenty of water and drinks stations very well placed and manned. Thanks again.
Only down side for me was runners disregard for how they disposed of water bottles and tops. Can't we be more thoughtful about this? I worry about criticism that could be heading our way on this. As for the runner in front of me coming down the hill shortly after the first drinks station who disgarded his bottle by throwing it high and to his left so it soared up and into the high lane-side hedge where it lodged - I'd like to force him headfirst into the hedge to go and get it.
