Jenny Spink Leads Club Athletes Home in Cardiff Half-Marathon

07 Oct

Jenny Spink finished forty-ninth overall and sixth (second Briton) in the Ladies race at the Cardiff Half-Marathon on Sunday 2nd October 2016 in 74:58. Afterwards she admitted that she had gone off very hard to try and stay as close to the Kenyan athletes as possible but paid for the strong start in the later stages of the race. Nevertheless it allowed her to lay to rest her previous experience over the same course when a torn calf muscle caused her to pull out at the eleven mile point of the World Half-Marathon in March 2016. Other club finishers were as follows:

111 Nick Brenchley   79.33

141 Daryl Phillips      80:53 (PB)

151 Steve Swan        81:20

262 Neil Light            84:35

328 Ben Andrews     86:31

860 Tracy Allan         92:47

1,289 Tanya Chowdhury      97:56

At the time of writing this blog only the first 1,500 finishers appear on the Run Britain web-site.
