Haweswater Half Marathon

04/03/2012

On Sunday morning, 4 hardy DRC runners travelled south through the sleet and snow to the Cumbrian village of Bampton for the Haweswater Half Marathon. The out and back course travels along the side of Haweswater with views of the snowy fells from start to finish. Vicky Hart reports...

As is often the case for races in the Lake District, the route is a very challenging one and the majority of competitors take part, not for a fast time, but to enjoy the stunning scenery and fantastic atmosphere. That being said, fast times are always a bonus!

One such fast time came from DRC Simon Mortlock, who was first home for the club in a fantastic time of 1 hour 28 minutes and 40seconds. Simon was really pleased with his run, especially as the runners were faced with some strong headwinds during the race.

Next home for the club was Bob Quinn in 1 hour 55 minutes and 46 seconds. Bob is recently returning from injury so was happy to be close to his target time for the race.

Next home for DRC was Vicky Hart in a time of 1 hour 57 minutes and 55 seconds. This was Vicky's first time in her club vest since giving birth to baby Annabel 4 and a half months ago. Vicky chose the Haweswater Half Marathon because it is such a challenging course that she knew she would have no pressure of 'delivering' a fast time but she was over the moon with her result, and her sprint finish!

In her second race in 8 days Liz Smart ran a well judged race only to be bumped by a cyclist in the final few miles. She bravely carried on with the race to come home in a time of 2 hours 2 minutes and 55 seconds.
