Blackpool Half Marathon

24/02/2013

On Sunday February 24th, John Jarvie and Chris Wilson made their way to Blackpool for the 24th Great North West Half Marathon. On a bright but windy day, John and Chris lined up outside the Hilton Hotel along with 1500 other runners, ready for their first race of the year....

An 11am race start gave the boys plenty of time to reach Blackpool to collect their race numbers and timing chips before congregating with the rest of the runners at the start line.The route consisted of two laps of the promenade and while mostly flat, the wind from the Irish Sea made conditions a little more difficult than expected. Chris got off to a great start and managed to keep a steady pace throughout the race to finish in 1:39:12, a new PB, knocking off over 11 minutes from his previous best.John started well but struggled with cramp in the second half of the race to finish in 2:02:13. While disappointed, John knows that he will have plenty of chances to improve on this time as he will be undertaking four more half marathons before the years out, while collecting money in aid of Ataxia UK, a charity close to his heart.Both John and Chris thoroughly enjoyed their day out and were very pleased to leave Blackpool having finished the day with a well deserved McDonald’s!
