Bentley Half Marathon – 7th February 2016
5 November 2015 - By James Crisp
Online entry for this well organised and fast Half Marathon has been open less than a week but already it is over half way to reaching the 900 race limit.
We have 27 runners registered so it looks like the 2016 WRC Road Race calendar will get off to a flying start. There are no entries on the day so the advice would be best get in quickly!
For those with a Spring Marathon in mind this is ideal preparation and barring snow this will be a good barometer as to how your training is progressing before cranking up the big miles.
Looking back over the years we have seen many PBs here. In 2007 two existing members ran times that remain unbeaten. A certain Chris Feasey clocked 1.16.15 and Brigid 1.34.44. Since then Brigid has also clocked the next two fastest times 1.35.42 (2008)and 1.36.41(2009) with Pete Riley’s 1.21.26 (2013) and Chris Martin’s 1.21.54 (2013) making the men’s top three.
