The Lode Half Marathon this weekend was changed to 11 miles as organisers had to make last minute changes because a rave was taking place on part of the course and the police wouldn’t let competitors run through it.
The 11 miles were flat and fast, taking in part of Lode fen. It was very wet, with a tail wind going out and a head wind on the way back to add extra challenge to the race.
Maxine Lane finished 4th lady and 36th overall in 1 hour 16 minutes 13 seconds. Hayden Marsh was 62nd overall in 1 hour 22 minutes 15 seconds and Crayton McDonald finished 75th overall in 1 hour 24 minutes 40 seconds.
240 runners took part.
