What a turnout at The Tunbridge Wells Half Marathon. As well as all the members doing their bit in volunteering for all the unsung jobs that ensure the race goes off well, with so many compliments filtering through from the runners via the Baggage Area, where we sometimes get to have a chat with some very tired people, we sent 62 competitors round the course, with lots of Harriers completing a Half Marathon for the first time as a Harrier. Many PBs and probably the best finish we have seen in all of its 40 year history.
It was very magnanimous of Matthew Chipping, who crossed the line with our own Dillon Hobbs, to concede that he felt that Dillon was an inch or two in front of him. The result was announced as a dead heat, which was really the most sporting of outcomes. Seeing many of the faces from 40 years ago was a truly great touch, which went down exceedingly well. We now have raised the level again so – next year will be interesting.
Not to be outdone, the deckchairs were on display in Seville with three Harriers competing in the Marathon with good results all round.
The results are attached.
Keep the results coming in.
