Ladies in fine fettle in Half-Marathons

Sunday 23rd October 2011 saw both the Birmingham and Stroud half-marathons being run and club female athletes fonished third in both. Running on her home course Kate Goodhead was third lady in the Stroud Half-Marathon in 78.49 behind a brace of Kenyan athletes, whilst further up the M5 club colleague Lucy MacAlister (75.30) finished third behind the in-form Gemma Steele (72.24) and Louise Damen (73.51). Annabel Granger was fifth in 80.13, Paula Gowing ninth lady in 83.41 and Julia Belyavin twenty-seventh lady in 91.25 (could that be a winning women’s team – I will follow up?)
