Robin Hood full and half Marathon

With the Equinox 24 event falling on the same weekend, it was a small group of Striders who made the short journey to Nottingham for the annual Robin Hood event. The sun decided to shine, so conditions were warm by late September standards, and we were grateful for the frequent water stations around the course.
A special mention goes to Greeba Heard, who completed her first full marathon and in doing so raised an amazing total of over £2,700 for the Breast Cancer Now charity – well done Greeba!
The races attracted over 7,000 participants in total, with a phased starting system along the Victoria Embankment. All times reported are chip times, with Striders times as follows:
Full Marathon – Greeba Heard 4.03.08
Half Marathon – Luke Eggleston 1.26.16 (75th place overall), Natalie Teece 1.28.31 (117th overall, and 4th F35), Alan Thompson 1.31.00 (half marathon PB), David Hall 1.53.46, Ross Jackson 2.01.34.
Helen Widdowson also completed the half marathon although I think the result was reported under the name of the lady whose place you took, so sorry I couldn’t find the official result but I remember you saying it was around 1.47 at the finish so well done Helen!
