The Great Bentley Half Marathon 2010


Apologies for these photos being later than planned - but something arrived earlier than planned (more at the footnote).

The gallery for the 2010 Great Bentley Half Marathon and Essex Championships is now live and online here:

Results and all good race related information can be found here on the GBRC website

For those of you who missed this fastest of half marathon courses - simply have a read of the online reviews here on runners world: http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/events/ratingsall.asp?P=1&ugn=5730&en=52932&year=0&v=2&sp=
Last year the ratings made it 47th out of the top 50 highest rated races in the country, so get your vote in to raise it up even higher...

Clearly a lot of PBs being made on Sunday in what would have been ideal conditions if it had been that little bit warmer, and there was quite a discussion going on over on Fetcheveryone.com.

Here's a quick selection of the photos from the day - the marshals at the waterstation, did a great job.

The early leaders stormed through the first 1.6 miles and never really looked back, although by 5 miles it had changed to 748 into the lead who continued to build on it...

Some great team running with friends and commitment to the race from everyone.

The leader looked far too fresh at the 10 mile mark, clearly not enjoying himself, and by the look of things - going the wrong way past the 5 mile mark...

Some strong finishing and great run-ins across the green to the warmth of the space blankets.

Very well done everyone, and please except my apologies for the late delivery of the gallery - it was interrupted somewhat by the early arrival of our second daughter on Monday, just when I should have been prepping and editing the gallery, and it had to take a little bit of a priority. Mum Sally - who took the photos at the finish line - is going well too. Last time it was the Henfield half marathon that brought on daughter number 1, and they have both been 15days early. Hmmm.

Many thanks for all the kind words and congratulations, they all mean a great deal to us !



See you at a race near you soon !

Anthony
