However, the elements did not stop 31 AVRs turning out, with fantastic support being given throughout.

Many were running their first half marathon and it was a fantastic achievement by all. Special mention for Laura Kerr, who was running the race whilst five months pregnant!

Duncan Staddon was the first AVR home, finishing 33rd in 01:23:03, closely followed by Robert Collier, 01:24:25; Terry Emmett, 01:26:02 and Ollie Rodger, 01:27:42.
