Fast Finishers at Forest Half

3 Apr, 2012

The Almost Athletes were out in force at the Forest of Dean Half Marathon. With over 60 runners competing, the club made its mark on the results sheet and produced many personal best times for its hard working members. Leading the way throughout was Dave McGrath who managed a top 50 finish and with a time of 1.23.58 and 5th placing in the MV40 category. Hot on his heels was the ever improving Ed Collier who crossed the line in 1.26.05, securing 2nd place in the MV50 category. Other notable performances with personal best times for this event further down the field were obtained by James Wilkinson whose intensive Ironman training afforded him a PB of 1.31.22, Ingrid Harris who crossed the line as 3rd LV45 in 1.35.24, Mark Lyes - currently training for the Brighton Marathon - who finished in 1.55.54 and Emma Yates in 1.56.56. Lorraine Brinton, competing in her first half marathon, completed the course in a very respectable 2 hours.
