West Wight Road Runners member Gareth Knight ran in the Bournemouth Bay Half Marathon on Sunday the 5th of April. In fine slightly warm conditions the race which covers the full length of the Bournemouth seafront was simply stunning. With a larger entry of running club members from the area than last year it is clearly gaining popularity and quite rightly so. Perhaps because it is not run by a running club but by the British Heart Foundation it has been a little slow to catch on.
The organisation on the day was good and the whole experience very worthwhile. Gareth finished in 1h29m38s for 88th place overall from the 1288 finishers and 10th M50.
