Isle of Wight Half Marathon

Five West Wight Road Runners took part in this years Isle of Wight Half Marathon on Sunday 17th August. The weather was as kind as could be reasonably hoped for when running a half marathon in August but combined with the hills and constant undulations of the course it is never a particularly easy race to take on.

With that in mind Gareth Knight was more than a little surprised to set a PB and finish in 1h29min52sec for 21st placed male and 4th V50. Will Ambrosini finished in 1h32min54sec for 32nd place and 16th SM whilst Andrew McEwen finished in 1h34min36sec for 36 placed male and 12th V40. Ian Jolliffe finished in 1h36min03sec for 40th and also posted the best category finish as 2nd male V60. Pete Boynton was the fifth runner for West Wight and finished in 127th place in a time of 1h59min45sec for a 37th V40 placing.
