7th April 2009 - Paddock Wood

The Paddock Wood Half Marathon took place on 5th April.

This can be a deceptive race. Although the course is basically flat, there are a few inclines particularly in the first couple of miles along with some railway bridges. However the course actually runs downhill until Laddingford, shortly before the 9 mile point, before it starts to return to Paddock Wood, so the last 4 miles or so is slightly uphill and often against the wind.

Congratulations to the 2 Waddie finishers who both finished in the top 400 out of a field of 1942. Lynn's time was particularly pleasing to her as it was her best ever. Well done, Lynn!

The results:-

167 1:29:17 MACKAY, Michael Wadhurst Runners Vet Men (40-49) 1:29:16 1832 167
399 1:37:23 HAYES, Linda Wadhurst Runners Vet Ladies (45-54) 1:37:22 233 399
