Veteran Pete Flewitt scored his first outright road win with victory at the Much Wenlock Half Marathon today, beating the course record by ten minutes. He ran 84:10, which gives you some idea of how tough the course is, when you consider Pete’s PB is 75:21! The race covers some very hilly terrain, taking in the footpaths, trails, bridlepaths and lanes in and around the town. Wenlock Olympian President Jonathan Edwards started the race and was there to congratulate Pete on his performance.
Fellow ESM member Steve Morris also made the journey, finishing 24th in 1:38:33.
