Milton Keynes Half Marathon

Race Date: Monday, 07/05/2018
Race Distance: Half Marathon

Given normal weekend running conditions this was close to the equivalent of lightening striking twice, after the rather hot marathon 2 weeks ago, as temperatures climbed to a reported 27C in MK on Monday. An earlier start than 10am and a bit of a breeze might have helped. Having done the marathon last year I was very pleased to turn off onto the Half route at 7miles particularly as that then winds pleasantly through a country park most of the way back to the finish at the MK stadium. Even with Windmiler colours on the locals were very friendly with their water pistols and hoses. Some 3200 runners did the Half and 2000 the Full. Despite the leisurely times I was 9th of 258 MV50 and Katy was 10th of 378 FV45, Mike was also 9th in category.
