Thames Meander Half Marathon

Posted: 26/08/2013 at 09:58

NellyP - yes that hill at the end was fairly arduous, bad enough for the half marathon, god knows what it was like for the marathon runners!

A pretty good event, the race website states the distance as 13.19 miles which is just over a half marathon distance, a few guys I spoke to in the changing rooms afterwards felt the course was longer than that though. Unfortunately my dinosaur Garmin was losing its signal regularly through the tree covered sections so was in no way accurate but nevertheless measured it long too.

The turnaround point for the half marathon was slightly chaotic as was the running onto oncoming marathon and half marathon runners. The rain was quite refreshing though!

Good luck to everyone doing the Marathon on Saturday.

I have dropped down to the half marathon following injuries... Happy days.

I am following a schedule on Garmin Connect, so I have done my longest run (time taken) on Saturday which was a 2hr:30min run in which I managed just over 16.3 miles - an "easy" pace. Legs feel OK, some soreness on my right ankle, as the training runs get longer, the aches and niggles do tend to come out, it is a judgement call as to which ones you can ignore!


Good luck everyone and keep those updates coming!


PS - how "bad" is the hill at mile 24?
