Lydd Half Marathon

Race Date: Sunday, 08/03/2020
Race Distance: Half Marathon

When I saw the forecast was for winds up to 50mph, I very nearly didn’t bother as it’s a long slog to the Kent coast, and on this course there’s no hiding place whatsoever. Definitely a day to avoid heroics and just put a few miles through the legs while trying to maintain some kind of running form. A lot of standing water on the country lanes, including some stretches of wading. And the into-the-wind sections were slow to the point of comedy. Respect to those who were doing the 20 mile version.
