Phoenix Running Summer Marathon

Race Date: Saturday, 01/08/2020
Race Distance: Marathon

A race, an actual physical race(!!!) courtesy of the lovely Phoenix Running. I snuck their Spring marathon in just before lockdown hit, and this is the first of their events that has been run physically since. Lots of very sensible covid-19 rules in place - super early staggered starts, tiny field, enormous amounts of hand sanitiser, smaller than usual laps and no aid stations so needed to be essentially self-sufficient. But so lovely to be back in a proper race again, the only downside was I'd assumed it was going to be cancelled so hadn't run longer than 14 miles in the last 3 months(!) But I survived, and it was fun :-) Dave officially did the half marathon, but added on an extra lap to take the distance up to 17 miles.
