The AVR Wiltshire half marathon took place on Sunday 28th November.
"Special thanks to Louise Fearon who did a brilliant job as Race Director and all the volunteers from the club and elsewhere, Sean Price as our resident MC, our sponsors, Ian Tuckett for providing medical cover, those who took some great photos, and James Hart from DB Max. Congratulations to everyone that ran. There were some exceptional performances." - Richard Newman, Club Chairman (pictured below handing out awards)
267 runners completed the course with the top spots being won by Tom Gurney of AVR in 1:12:08 and Hannah Alderson of Bristol and West AC in 1:18:55 (pictured below).
An amazing story to come from this year's race is that of 72 year old runner, Jenny Mills (below, 206).
Thank you to everyone who bought cake at the finish line. There was a lot raised for our chosen charity, The Wiltshire Air Ambulance but we're still counting the amount so an announcement will be made shortly.
