Scenic Haweswater

03/03/2013

On Sunday March 3rd, five members of Dumfries Running Club made the trip down to Cumbria for the Haweswater Half Marathon. Jo Needham tells us her story....

''I chose Haweswater Half Marathon as I wanted to run a race per month in the lead up to the Edinburgh Marathon in May. I thought this plan would keep me motivated and get me back into race mentality.  Haweswater was my first race of 2013 and my first half marathon since 2009, so I had no idea what to expect time-wise. Ideally, I would have liked to dip under the 2 hour mark but on the day it was not meant to be. I had forgotten just how challenging and hilly the course is and so although I set off at a reasonable pace and managed to keep it going until the 7 mile mark, I struggled from miles 7-9. Although I picked it up again, I knew by then that I would keep my sub 2 for another day. Although I was disappointed to finished in 2:06:57, I consoled myself with the fact that it was still another good long run in the bag."

 

The results of the DRC boys are as follows: 

 

Simon Mortlock 1:30:37

Mike Trant 1:48:52

Richard McDougall 1:51:57

Jim Grierson 1:54:25
