In the M40 age group he was 12th out of 196, This was a terrific performance from Andrew, which he was extremely pleased with, beating his previous Shakespeare marathon time by nearly half an hour.
Simon ran the half marathon, his first for about 25 years. He was also very pleased to come home in 24th place overall out of 1638 finishers, in a time of 84mins 23secs. This gave him 7th M40 out of 319 and he also clocked a new vet pb of 64.09 at 10 miles along the way.
This was an excellent race, well organised and supported, and a thoroughly enjoyable weekend for the two West Wight Road Runners.
