—Malcolm Peet reports—–
Yesterday was the Hornsea one third marathon (East Yorkshire coast).
It is a nice course, relatively flat (but then I live in hilly
Sheffield) on country lanes with the traffic well controlled, and on a
lovely sunny but cool day. A small field – only 338 starters – made
this the kind of race that I like. Having been nursing a sprained
calf, I managed 78.28, position 253. Not too bad though for a 68 year
old! I recommend this race; several people were doing it for speed
training before the London Marathon.
— well done Malcolm – you’ll have to compare notes with Sid who has
done several 1/4 marathons!
