Milton Keynes Marathon and Half Marathon – Sunday 1 May 2016
Four Jags travelled to the MK Dons stadium on what started as a dreary bank holiday monday.
This didn’t last and as the races got under way the sun came out, and it slowly warmed up through the race.
Andy entered the far shorter mere 13.1 mile jog, leaving the full marathon for the experienced more mature runners.
In his own words he went out to quickly ( not like him at all then ) but did achieve a creditable Gold standard 1.26.15. Well done Andy.
The marathon course was a mix of roads, roundabouts, and cycle paths meandering around the town and countryside of Milton Keynes, and the dreaded underpasses providing an added challenge.
All Jags gave their best, Mel obviously didn’t want to buy the beer at the finish so kept back finishing with a silver standard 3.43.34. Rod also achieved a silver standard 3.35.56. Jeremy was very pleased to buy the beers in a diamond standard time of 3.22.24.
Well done all.
( I probably would not have got this time if Mel and Rod had not been there )
