So this is my first race report, be kind guys .
Bournemouth Marathon 26.2 miles, 4,000 approximately runners, only 2 Harriers that I am aware of. Sorry if I have missed anyone.
Myself and Joy Gough (Joy’s first and she was returning to racing after fracturing her foot at the beginning of the year)
So the conditions were better than the predicted rain but still with a headwind of 38/39mph! And the hills at mile 12 and mile 17/18, running on the promenade with sand under foot for miles 13-17 and 21-24 against the wind, with sand occasionally blowing in your eye was never going to be conditions for a PB. (Yes I am getting the excuses out early).
Anyhow a respectable time of 3:47 for me and Joy 3:51! Which we are both proud of.
