Bratislava Marathon

13/04/2016

The Bratislava Marathon, half marathon and relay run took place on Sunday 3rd April.

Sunday April 3rd saw Stephen Mohan and Sheila Graham of Dumfries Running Club travel to Slovakia’s capital city Bratislava to take part in a combined marathon, half marathon and relay run. With temperatures climbing to 23 degrees and clear blue skies these were ideal conditions for spectators but less so for runners but the superbly organised race officials had added in extra water stops.

With 6000 in the half marathon and 900 in the longer event the crowds were out in force, especially in the picturesque old town which helped on a winding route that doubled back on itself in several places. Starting together for the first 8k Sheila kept her pace going throughout the 13miles and was delighted to cross the line in 1 hour 57 finishing in the top third of the field. Winding his way through the field, Stephen felt strong and managed to keep a steady pace throughout the first and second laps of the course and was able to overtake many hundreds of runners to cross the line in 3 hours 31mins and was especially delighted to complete the second lap in 104mins, three minutes faster than the first.
