Thanet Half Marathon 7/9/14
Report by Odette Collard-Woolmer
Two Dover Road Runners travelled across to Palm Bay, Cliftonville today to tackle the Kent Coastal Half Marathon. The morning started incredibly foggy however by the time the race started at 9.30 the sun was out and it was incredibly hot and humid. There were nearly 300 runners taking part in the half marathon and there was also around 200 runners embarking on a full marathon. It is a challenging but scenic coastal course with many undulations – surprising for Thanet.
Odette Collard-Woolmer completed the course in 1hr50 and Clare Thurgate in 1hr57 knocking an impressive 21 minutes off her previous years time for this race. This is a great event with many different clubs taking part with good support on the course and excellent marshaling and organisation from Thanet Road Runners.
