Richard Purton and Bill Wright Complete Bristol Half Marathon

On Sunday two TRAC runners took part in the Simply Health Bristol Half Marathon. Men's Captain Richard Purton finished in 1:49:09 and Bill Wright, Vice Chairman was a bit (!) behind him on 2:14:48.

There was a field of nearly 7,500 for the race, which took runners on an 8 mile scenic round trip up and down the Avon Gorge before finishing with 5 miles around the streets of Bristol. 

This race is one of the Simply Health Great Run series was very well organised with plenty of water stations, portaloos on the route etc. The support in the city was great, and fortunately, the weather held up well for the day.

Bill was running it with his son Chris who lives in Bristol. Chris had never run a race before and finished in a very respectable 1:55:54.  Richard was running with his best friend, Peter Williams.
