On Saturday it was the second running of the Cannock ChaseTrail Half Marathon as on the first occasion on 13 April the race had to be
voided due to markers being moved and the runners were re-routed from the
course. This time all went to plan,
except for the heat, which made for a tough race, given it is a hilly course
(397m) although there was some respite from the heat in the trees now and
then. For MAC Jan Forrester took part
and completed in 2 hours 18 minutes 46 secs, 7th LV40, 87thoverall from a field of finishers of 186 runners. The winner was Wes Southall 1.33.19 and the
winning lady finished in 1.54.02.
