Mountainous Maidstone Marathon

Well done to Jo Jeffreys and Becky Williams who both completed the Maidstone half marathon on 16th October.

The event was run alongside the full marathon organised by Maidstone Harriers assisted by Nice Work.

Becky finished 3rd in the women’s race in a time of 1:48:10, 49th overall in a field of 377.

Jo finished 241st in a time of 2:17:18.

These are both fantastic achievements as the course is very hilly indeed and due to a marshalling error it was half a mile too long. The race was described as scenic in the sense of the Scenic Railway at Dreamland in a report by Run ABC South. It took full advantage of the hills in the villages around Maidstone.

Well done girls! You have both done yourselves and the club proud in what was a physically and mentally challenging race.

Full results can be found here.

Apparently it was all worth it for the coffee afterwards.
