Santa Pola Half Marathon

20/01/2013

On Sunday 20th January, Ross and Sarah Queen enjoyed the Spanish sun in the Santa Pola Half marathon...

Situated just outside Alicante, Santa Pola is easy to get to, has a great race route and best of all, it doesn't snow there!

Over 7,000 took part on the shoreline course in an event that had a real party atmosphere to it with a fireworks display getting the race under-way early in the morning to try to avoid the heat of day.

A slowish start due to the high entrant numbers suited Ross and Sarah, but both were soon into a good running pace. Sarah got a bit hot around the half-way mark but finished strongly to knock two minutes off her PB with a time of 98:26, in 1949th place over-all and 23rd in her category.

Ross also suffered with the heat on the day and dropped back a little, but his time of 107 minutes was good enough to place him comfortably in the top half of the field.

Both runners judged the event to be well organised and would recommend it for anyone wanting a winter race break.
