A nice September morning greeted the 400 or so runners who lined up for the start of the 2009 Surrey Badger Half Marathon.
Ollie Laws of team Asics UK took the lead right from the off and finished in 1:15:33 some 9 minutes faster than last years winning time which was in the wet.
A nice downhill start from the centre of Leatherhead leads off into the beautiful Surrey Countryside, including a few hills and plenty of enthusiastic marshals !
First in the Vet Men age group from Thames Hare & Hounds powering round the course a little after the 5 mile mark and finishing in 1:21:43.
and the rest of the field followed on closely...
A strong finish from local athlete Bruce to take 5th place.
Plenty of smiles as at the finish
Lots of enthusiastic supporters greeting the finishers
Finishing together !
Post race stretching with some Badger beer to help !
