Haltwhistle Half Marathon

28/09/2014

Sunday 28th September saw the first running of the Haltwhistle Half Marathon and Vicky Hart decided to use the race as part of her final preparations for her target of the Majorca Marathon next month. Vicky reports as follows...

"The race starts and finishes in a field next to Bellister Castle and is an out and back course along the South Tyne Trail taking in the Lambley Viaduct at miles 5 and 8. The first and final 3.5 miles are on tarmac whilst the middle miles of the race are on more of a gravel path. The race appears deceptively flat but it is a constant steady climb to the halfway point that covers the same amount of climbing as the Dumfries Half Marathon. Fortunately that means the second half is a steady descent back to the finish.

One quirky feature of the race is that on the southern side of the viaduct the route goes through a private garden. One of the conditions of allowing the race to pass through the garden was that all runners had to WALK through the garden both times they passed through it. Anyone caught running by the garden marshals would be instantly disqualified from the race. I was aiming to practice my marathon pacing but found I struggled from the start, and the gravel path made it harder than I thought it would be, however I managed to clock some fast final miles to finish with a time of 1:52:37 in 92nd place and 5th LV35."

Vicky.
