Balloch to Clydebank Half-Marathon 2015

Well that's a new one - a race that went better than I expected.   I'd been getting some decent training in recently, but an unexpected trip North at the end of the week, a couple of late nights/early starts and a fair few hours slumped…

Lancaster half marathon

Results Lancaster half marathon and I have a history. I had a disastrous run there last year which pulled me up short and put an end to my idea I need not train to race. So, I came to settle the score on a wintry, windy, overcast morning, but…

Helensburgh Half Marathon

Mibee a mid life crisis or mibee inspired by all the athletic goings on down in London but last night I realised I hadn't run a half marathon on the road since 2007. I knew the Helensburgh Half was on this morning and a quick check indicated…

Glen Clova Half Marathon

This weekend I ran a race. But I didn’t race a race. I just ran it for the sheer enjoyment of running! Or at least that was my intention. This half marathon isn’t in the p.b. range, so why did I bother traipsing a 260 mile round…

Bilbao Half Marathon

I've been meaning to write a race report for a while now, but there's been little time since moving here. I've found some gorgeous hills about 15 mins run from the flat so I'm well chuffed! However, last week a friend asked me if I'd join him…

Alloa Half Marathon

This was my first road race in a while and had a friend from uni running it so thought I may as well have a crack at it. After achieving a pb there last year (01:31:18) I was hoping to make a similar repeat performance with a sub-90 but my training’s…

Scottish Vets Half Marathon

4th October 2009 I'd never really taken part in any of the Scottish Masters events, so I thought I'd give their Half Marathon a bash. The race starts at Clydebank, and heads out along the canal towpath for 6.5 miles before turning. Then once…

Great Scottish Run Half Marathon

6th September 2009Enjoyable jaunt around Glasgow, with another record entry (around 20,000 for all events). Took me around 1 minute to even get to the start line! The inevitable slow first mile followed until I could get moving after the Kingston,…
