Forfar Multi-Terrain Half Marathon

3rd February 2008
Results | Details

Early morning torrential rain abated to give a fine run along the roads and trails around Forfar. The "multi-terrain" challenges included slippy muddy fields, umpteen gates to open and close, huge muddy puddles, and one fairly long section of knee-deep icy cold water.

I battled along with James Britton of Moorfoots in 2nd/3rd place, after giving up trying to stay with local runner Craig Stewart who opened up an early lead. Craig was never challenged, and won in 1:19:12. James finished second in 1:21:38, and I was about 20 seconds adrift in 1:21:59 to finish 3rd. Ellie had a strong run to finish as 4th lady in 1:34:12.

Thanks for posting these results, Chris. I've been checking the Forfar Roadrunners' site periodically but they still haven't appeared. It was quite an event! I ran the 2nd half either just in front of, or just behind, Ellen Homewood, and chatted afterwards. She passed me first of all on the underwater section!
