Malta Half Marathon

10 miles in the legs starting to wain (in fact I think they had been whinging since around 10k). If only I had just kept my mouth shut 2 months earlier, to give you some context, for some reason I had been missed off an email circulation at work offering the first ten respondents the opportunity to run the half marathon in Malta with accommodation etc. paid for by work. All we had to do was raise £250 for CHIPS charity.

Retford Half Marathon (08/03/2020)

The Retford Half Marathon though 80 miles from Hull is not unkown to Hull runners. It is organised by Retford Athletic Club and attracts approximately 1 200 entrants each year. It leaves Retford from Retford Oaks Academy on Babworth Road and travels through the local North notts countryside, which looks very similar to our East Yorkshire countryside unsurprisingly. The first 5 miles are flat and there are a few rises(including a small railway bridge at mile 11 which we never appreciate running up), the last couple of miles are downhill but because the road (Worksop Road) is not closed and runners are required to run on the left you have to be careful when overtaking as the footpath is narrow in some places. So its not like the North East Lincs or Boston halfs which are very flat but not too arduous and a good time beckons for those who have trained appropriately.
