Hot sunny weather is often overlooked as a problem, but as a blessing for many races, however for a half marathon with peak summer temperatures on Sunday plenty of people took precautions to ensure they were hyrdrated and sensible on the day.
Well done to everyone on coping with the heat and the support services who were called in to help the few that suffered the most, I hope they have got better by now.
Congratulations to everyone at the Destination Basingstoke team who co-ordinated everything and for such a great first time event, I look forwards to next years !
