eXeter Half Marathon

Report by Rod Cooper

Chris and I ran the eXeter Half Marathon 2019 on Sunday 10th February. Why? Because this counts as an X in our Half Marathon Alphabet (our challenge, our rules!). The course was 2 laps around the picturesque quay and River Exe water-meadows, mostly on paths and cycleways, mainly flat but with a couple of small hills thrown in for good measure. Stair rod rain the previous night ensured the course was well watered, ankle deep in places! Nevertheless we both recorded PBs, Chris knocking almost 5 minutes off hers to finish in 2:41:02, and 4 minutes off mine finishing in 2:08:58.
