Central Lancashire Half Marathon

06/01/2013

Jo Zakrzewski was looking for a good solid race to start the year, and so on Sunday she returned to the Central Lancashire Half Marathon...

The race is a popular one with the 450 places sold out by the start of December, but the organisers didn't turn anyone away who wanted a run on the day. The course is known to be relatively flat with 4 steady rises where the route crosses the motorway (and a sneaky humpbacked bridge half a mile from the finish) and as runners were keen to work off their Christmas excesses, many of them set off at an overly ambitious pace. Jo started more steadily and worked her way up through the field over the first few miles. She moved up into second place at the 4 mile mark, and then her main competition was from the local goats who joined in the race after 9.5 miles, and decided it would be fun to headbutt Jo. The early fog had cleared and so conditions were good, enabling Jo to run a steady race, happily finishing in a new PB of 77:46.
