Droitwich Half Marathon – 6 March 2016

This was the 5th anniversary of the Droitwich Half Marathon organised by Droitwich Athletics Club which also incorporated the Worcestershire County Half Marathon Championships.  It was a cool bright day – ideal for running.  This chip timed race started on Ombersley Way near Droitwich High School and finished with nearly 2 laps of the athletics track at the school.  The new course was on quiet country lanes around Droitwich taking  in Salwarpe, Ladywood, Hadley, Porters Mill and Ferhill Heath.  It was challenging and undulating but more hilly between miles 6 and 9 on the figure of eight section of the course.  Runners retraced the route for the last 3.5 miles back to the finish.

Malvern Joggers were led home by Henry Walker in a time of 1:24:29, followed by Ben Toon (1:39:39), Jerry Greer (1:44:40), Paul Webb (1:49: 03), Julie Caseley (1:51:12) who was also 1st Female Vet 50 winning a voucher, Sian Maxfield (1:56:44), Lucy Gallagher (1:58:27), Julia Heron (1:59:24) and Peter Wilson (2:00:05).
