A NUMBER of Harlow runners took part in the London Landmarks Half Marathon on Sunday.
Over 14,000 runners took part in an event that was first scheduled for March 2020.
Many of the runners did the 13.1 mile race for charity.
Our editor Michael Casey ran for the EHE Rare Cancer Charity.
Michael said: “I ran on behalf of my good friend Harlow resident Jill Aylott.
I was delighted to raise over £800 for a great cause. Thank you to all those who sponsored me”
“It was a really well organised event and we had tremendous support all the way round”
Michael also bumped into two members of Harlow running group ParkRunandBeyond Liz Tucker and Sam Heaton after the race at Horse Guards Parade.
Another ParkrunandBeyond runner was Rachel Bayliss who raised over £800 for The Alzheimers Society.
This was Rachel’s first half marathon and not even a fall stopped Rachel from completing the course.
Harlow’s Nicola Stripp has become a regular presence in the Harlow running scene for a number of years now and ran a very creditable 2 hrs 31 in what was quite a warm day.
We will be adding the Harlow Running Club participants in due course.
Harlow Running Club had four members contest the London Landmarks Half Marathon on Sunday morning.
Vicky Steadman was first home for HRC in 1088th place out of 10,954 finishers in an excellent 1hr 43min 20sec. She was followed by Mark Moulds 2887th in 1.56.42, Paul Cadogan 6837th in 2.21.50 and Dan Finch 7306th in 2.25.31.
Well done, all the runners! Brilliant achievement.
