Bristol Half Marathon – Sun 15 Sep 2013

While the younger athletes were contesting the Middlesex road relays, three of the club’s distance runners enjoyed success at the Bristol Half Marathon. In a field of 11,000 entries, Steve Elson finished in the top 50. His time of 74:41 represented an impressive three-minute improvement on his previous best. Veteran Fiona Kennedy was the 26th female to cross the line, her time of 85:28 also being the best performance by an athlete aged 55+ (male or female!) The third club member to race was Hannah Pollak, formerly a student at Bristol University and now based in the city. More usually seen racing on the track, Hannah made her half marathon debut in a very respectable 91:49.
