Roadrunners Brace the Heavy Rain at the Canterbury Half Marathon

Heavy rain met the Thanet Roadrunners that took part in the notoriously tough Canterbury Half Marathon on Bank Holiday Monday 25th August 2014.  A popular part of the Kent sporting calendar, the Canterbury Half Marathon provides its runners with some a challenging course and some very steep hills.  Despite the terrain and weather, the cool conditions led to some personal bests from the roadrunners with 3 finishing in the top 30 out of a field of over 400 runners.

Owen Mitchell who came just inside the top 20 said, ' It was a great morning out in the rain.  There were some amazing Personal Bests (PB) today from Bradley Cameron (see picture) and John Hunt. I was five minutes away from having a PB despite coming back from an injury!

John Hunt who had run an ultra marathon two days before at the 32 mile White Cliffs Challenge said,  ‘The Canterbury Half Marathon inadvertently turned into a Personal Best despite running 32 miles on Saturday…it felt really good…45 miles in 3 days. ‘ 

John Added, ‘Next up the Kent Coastal Marathon on 7th September…I can't wait!’
