Instead meet at the Fleur De Lis at Leigh as last year TN11 8RL.

Halstead & Essex Marathon

This was never going to be a PB or even close to a fast marathon for me.  My training schedule told me the mileage I need to run and I entered a marathon to take away the boredom of the pavements of Tunbridge Wells and I am so glad I did!!

A fantastic course in north Essex along an abundance of hidden back roads amongst rolling hills, woods and farmlands, apart from a 400m stretch in the last mile, the race is entirely on roads with very little traffic.  Continually rated in the top 5 marathon races in the UK.  Extremely organised drinks, water and sponges along the route. You could even mark up your own drinks and they were transported from start to various stations along the course should you need to. No toilet queues as toilets aplenty….a huge plus!.

Nicola Morris took part in the Mid Sussex Marathon over the bank holiday weekend. It is a combination of three events, the East Grinstead 10 mile on Saturday, the Haywards Heath 10 mile on Sunday with the Burgess Hill 10k making up the marathon distance.

Nicola managed times of 1:22:01, 1:17:03 and 49:33 for each race respectively. She came 21st out of 158 runners, but won the ladies competition as first female home! A superb achievement, only 2 weeks after getting a PB at the Brighton Marathon.
