AVR member Sarah Glynn completed her first half marathon when she took part in the Forest of Dean Marathon, writes Dave Mutter.
She completed the race in a time of 2:08 – at least 10 mins better than she expected! Conditions saw weather of 20 degrees with a light breeze – perfect!
In the glorious private setting of the Flete Estate, Mothecombe on the River Erme estuary, three AVRs completed the ‘Long Half Marathon’ of 16 miles.
Richard Jackson was first home, 39th in 2:38:23, Roger Bramley was 51st, 2:45:11, and Georgia Dommett – who actually entered the much shorter 14k race, but missed the split so ran 16 miles instead – did well to finish 53rd in a time of 2:45:44.
