Hi folks, I hope you get this as I’m not really in to this techie stuff, but here goes.
Saturday 6th September 2014 A big turnout of around about 2500 runners at the 1st Scottish Half Marathon in East Lothian. The weather was ideal for the race, very light winds not too sunny, starting at Meadowmill Sports Centre, just outside Prestonpans. I met fellow Harrier Sadie at start in one of the colour coded pens. The run started in waves at 11am sharp heading out to Longniddry through village back streets then out on to main road to Gosford House turning on the road and heading back along Longniddry Bents coast road to Port Seaton and Cockenzie then through Prestonpans following the Edinburgh Marathon route to the finish at Musselburgh Race Course main Stadium. A reasonable turn out of spectators especially in Prestonpans where the locals like at the Marathon handed out jelly babies to the runners. Plenty water and gel stations along course and a better finish in the stadium than at Pinkie Park for the Marathon as the spectators had a chance to see runners come in to the finish.Good medal and finishers goody bag and tech top t shirt on completion, great to see Sadie waiting at finish for me as well.Good PB potential on a flat course.Results are
