PETERBOURGH 1/2 MARATHON 14/10/2018

Coltishall Jaguars very own damp dozen travelled over the Cambridgeshire border to take part in a very wet Peterborough Half Marathon.

First Jag home with a PB and Gold Standard was Jack Stuttle in an outstanding time of 1:28:37. Sonja White made light work of the puddles as the first Jag lady in a time of 1:47:06 a Silver Standard while also grabbing a PB.

There were also a PBs for Katie Fenn, who secured a Bronze Standard and Stephanie Hall who was helped along by Andy Mulligan.

Graham Fryer ran the distance for the first time and looked full of running at the end so PBs and standards await as his improvement continues.

Also running a half marathon for the first time as Jags were Lynn Lambert gaining a Silver Standard and Karen Bradley running with Sharon Jones both coming in with a Bronze Standard.

Karen Evans again broke the two-hour mark while claiming a Bronze standard.

Sue Emnett and Peter Kean-Cockburn also completed a very wet Half Marathon.

Despite the conditions, did I mention it was raining, the crowd support on route was still pretty good and special thanks has to go out to the marshals and volunteers out on the course.

All in all a well organised event on a flat city centre based event with loads of PB potential which most entrants return to.

LEICESTER 1/2 MARATHON 14/10/18

I took a last minute entry and I wasn’t disappointed. It was a lovely early start of 8.45am, with the marathon and relay races starting at the same time as the half. It was mild day, with no wind and with an initial damp start it turned into a heavy downpour however, I always find the rain quite refreshing! The route started in Victoria park and headed out of Leicester down London road toWatermead park. This is the point where the half splits from the marathon and they head out towards Syston. The half return back, taking the scenic route around Watermead Park and along the canal passing the National Space Centre and through Abbey Park. It then zigzags through Leicester city centre before returning back to Victoria park to the finish.

Would I recommend this race? – Yes Why? – Very well organised, an early start and plenty of free off road parking. I also loved the route with lots of twists and turns on the return after the half way point.

VILNIUS LITHUANIA MARATHON & 10K 09/09/2018

Linkejimal is Vilniaus Lietuvos (Greetings from Vilnius Lithuania)
Once again the Jags were on their travels and this time they headed to Eastern Europe for the 15th Danske bank Vilniaus Maratonas for the full marathon and 10km run. The running festival also included a half marathon, a #beactive running event from children ranging from 2-12 and a family  4.2km run. As you can tell from the dates the marathon started after the fall of communism in eastern europe and had grown each year to be one of the most competative marathons in  the baltic states.
Benjamin Letzer was in the marathon which started at 9.00am so was still reasonably cool. The start and finish were situated at the majestic Cathedral Square and the race started promptly. The race is a two lap route heading out and back along the Neris river and out towards the Vingio Parkas. It then heads back into the city past numerous squares, past the KGB building (now the museum of genocide victims) and into the old town the highlights being th epresidential palace, the university, into Uzupio (known to be the artistic area of the city and a republic in it’s own right), St Anne’s Church (the site of the first peacful protest against the communists) and back into Cathedral Square.
Ben looked amazing on both laps and was cheered on by his fellow Jags. He finished in a time of 3.10.31 finishing 51st in a field of 738 runners. A fantastic achievement as the temperatures rose and Ben had little sleep the night before due to a late arrival.
It was then the turn of the 10km runners at 2pm with the temperatures averaging 26 degrees. The runners included Sarah Letzer, Vanessa Clements, Annette Yeomanson, Hilda Mears (back in orange) and her partner Mike Peyrebrune. The route mirrored that of the marathon initially and again focussed on the old town. Alot of caution was taken initially due to the heat and although there were water stations there were concerns about water running out. At the end of the race Ben and Mike showed alot of support as the 10km runners came in. However, there does seem to be some descrepancy in the times as it was uncertain where the race actually finished as the next race was being organised and the finishers of the 10km were manouvered into a small channel rather than going over the whole finish line.
After the race the group headed off to the nearest bar to try some of the Kraft beers and sample some of the local dishes which included alot of dumplings!!. Vilnius is a beautiful City, easy to get around and relatively cheap. If you’re looking for a running festival with mostly flat courses this is for you.
