Kempton Park Half Marathon

Race Date: Sunday, 30/05/2021
Race Distance: Half Marathon

My first half this year was a rollover from a cancelled 2020 event, and this one was offered in lieu of last year’s cancelled Spring Race Day. I wasn’t expecting Kempton Park to be particularly scenic but was pleasantly surprised. Although four laps, the route ran mainly away from the racecourse and around an attractive lake. Totally flat, and though the weather forecast was full-on scorchio, the sun didn’t make an appearance until part way through, and it was even a tad chilly for the 11.30 start. Still, it was hot enough to need a pint on the way home!
