Vanguard Way Marathon

Race Date: Sunday, 06/08/2017
Race Distance: Marathon

Scenic but lumpy out and back course starting in everyone’s favourite field, Lloyd Park in Croydon. I had to pinch myself on arrival to be sure that this sunny spot was the same venue as the annual cross-country mud and freeze fest. I managed to keep a fairly steady pace throughout and pegged back a few front runners in the second half who had started off too fast, ending up in third place. Good, friendly organisation and an oversized trophy which impressed my three year old who thought it looked like a sword! Recommended for next year.
