RADCLIFFE AC’s Katie White went a long way to compete in a race when she traveled to Iceland for the Reykjavik Midnight Sun Half Marathon.
She won the ‘over 40’ prize in the event which is run in the midnight sun but she was disappointed with her time of 1hr 48mins after suffering cramp. On holiday with friends, she said the place and the race were fantastic. Katie put her cramp down to spending too much time relaxing in a hot thermal pool before the race!
