Race 6 - Hadrians Wall Half Marathon Sun 29th June 2014

This, the sixth event of the 2014 Grand Prix, took place in the wilds of west Northumberland, just to the north of the Roman Wall.  On what was quite a cool day for late June no bad thing, that but mercifully dry, thirteen Blyth runners set off in an event that had long since reached capacity and were soon faced with downhill, followed by uphill, followed by more uphill and so it would go on.  As billed, the race was truly multi-terrain with the early and late miles on road but with several miles across trail (which was quite technical in places) and then along forest paths.

With the significantly undulating (OK, make that hilly) nature of the course added to the two thirds that was off-road, this was never going to be a race for PBs but some good times were recorded nonetheless and the scenery for those who managed to appreciate it was all that could be expected.

Most of our runners seemed to have enjoyed the experience, at least after they had stopped having to run and hopefully a few of us will try this one again in the future.

The full results can be found on the Event Website.
