The Lichfield Half Marathon is the 5th Grand Prix event this year and was on Sunday 7th May. It was a beautifully sunny day, which perhaps was appreciated more by the spectators than the runners, as it was quite warm.
As is usual for this race there was a good attendance from our club, with lots of our runners, some very experienced and some less so, all putting in some great performances.
Well done to our fastest three runners, our top trio of Jons!
Jon Corpe – 1.22.29
Jon Wolfe – 1.23.01
John Hayman – 1.26.13
Well done also to Cass Jackson, our first woman home in a time of 1.47.52
A big well done also to Sarah and Hannah from our improvers group for great efforts on their first half marathon!
The race was not without it’s drama, with an unscheduled train holding runners up halfway round at the level crossing, with many runners held for several minutes.
