Report – Adam Evans
On Sunday we had a good contingent of us representing Stratford AC at the Broadway Half. I’ve done the course a few times previously in training, but never actually raced it, so it was good to finally give it a crack.
The race started well, Rich Liggatt was first to the top (while scaring a few of the locals along the way), I was about 5th to the tower. After that Rich was holding his lead nicely while I was picking off the next few runners.
In the end Rich finished first in 1:40:30, I was 2nd in 1:41:36, Pete Sudgen (1:51:38) had a great run and finished 8th (so 3 men in the top 10). The first female finisher was our own Emmy Orton in (2:01:35) and 18th overall, a cracking run by her. Clare Weatherhead finished 15th lady, 69th overall, in a time of 2:29:31.
It was a great day and I’d highly recommend it. It’s great to see both the men and woman doing so well on a tricky course!
