WISSEY 1/2 MARATHON 01/09/2019
Wissey Half Marathon The Wissey Half Marathon starts in Oxborough with a nice undulating route passing through the countryside of West Norfolk. It was a very nice, smaller scale race with around 300 runners taking part and was well marshalled throughout, and reasonably well organised although the queues for the portaloos caused a short delay to the start of the race. The weather for the race was good, with temperatures not too high, but the long incline through most of mile nine proved to be very challenging – I was certainly pleased that the last 3-4 miles were mainly downhill! Two Jags competed in this race with Sharon Jones achieving a great time of 2:03.31 and a Silver standard. There was also great support from Charlotte Read out on the course! Personally, I was very happy to achieve a new PB, knocking 1 min 11 off my previous best to claim 13th place overall.
