Bedford Half Marathon

Twelve LBAC athletes enjoyed success in the last club championship race of the year at the Bedford Half Marathon. The day was chilly and damp, but the rain stayed away to give everyone excellent running conditions over the tough undulating course.

There were two ladies who took the opportunity to compete in a big half marathon close to home. Claire Kleanthous is looking to increase her running, having spent a few years focussing on the other two aspects of triathlon and came home in 2.18. Ahead of Claire, Amy Inchley retained her half marathon title with a time of 1.55.12. Having had an up and down couple of months, she was pretty pleased with the solid time. read more

Peter Smashes PB

Last weekend Peter Mackrell made the short trip over to the Stevenage for the annual half marathon hosted by Fairlands Valley Spartans. On what was a pretty wet and windy day, Peter's northern upbringing made him feel right at home. Not only did he finish in an excellent 14th position out of 677 finishers he smashed his personal best time by recording a superb 1.19.55, although he has commented that a V45 lady pipped him by 2 seconds – sorry Peter. This just goe sto show what a bit of serious marathon training can do for your times as Peter is in training for the Luton marathon at the beginning of December and we wish him well in that. read more
