Deveron Valley Half Marathon – 09/09/2018

3 MRRs went along and ran this inaugural HM organised by Deveron Harriers.  It went from Turriff to Banff along quiet country roads with the final 3 miles being offroad, through the grounds of Duff House and we finished on the Running track of the sports centre.

Registration went well in the Sports centre in Banff, we were given our numbers and then a bus took us to the start in Turriff, unfortunately the buses let us all off in the wrong location, but after some conversation, everyone walked to the start about a mile away

MRRs running were Steve Reeve, Sally Bruce and Robert Bruce

This is a challenging course and it undulates for most of the way, so a pb is not on the cards for this course, after the morning being very wet and raining, at the start the sun came out.  We had really good running conditions.

Steve came in at 1:32:25 and finished in 6th position

Robert came in at 1:52:13 and finished in 28th position

Sally came in at 2:08:09 and finished in 52nd position

This is a good HM and will challenge you if you run it.  I would recommend giving it a go
