Anna Pearce Gravel Hill 5 Mile and Midnight Marathon Results

14 Aug
Anna Pearce competed in 2 races on Saturday 5th August 2017 at the Second Wind Running festival. First on the Saturday was the Gravel Hill 5 Mile trail race at 4 p.m. where she took it easy and finished as sixth female. This was followed a few hours later by the Midnight Marathon (43 km) at 9 p.m., where she finished as second lady in the race and twenty-fifth overall. Anna reports that both races were enjoyable, but quite hilly and challenging trail runs in the Queen Elizabeth Country Park, with the marathon being done by head torch at night. Anna would definitely recommend Second Wind Running events to fellow Bristol & West AC runners as they are well organised trail races with beautiful routes! She was also happy to walk away with second overall in the placings for runners completing the “Double” – both the Gravel Hill 5 Mile and the Midnight Marathon on the same day.
