Race report 20/2/22

Two Radcliffe Athletic Club members faced very different conditions when they ran half marathons on different continents.

Gary Adkins ran a superb 1:23:09 at the Ras Al Khaimah Half Marathon in the United Arab Emirates.

Billed as the world’s fastest half marathon, he finished 44th out of more than 20,000 runners – just missing out on a personal best in the heat which sapped his strength in the last 5k. The event was a family affair, with his three children taking part in the one-mile run.

Closer to home, Mike Kontowtt contended with very windy conditions at the Blackpool Half Marathon. He was fifth V55 and 143rd overall in 1:50:20.

Mia Derbyshire ran a great 44:50 when she was 37th out of 310 runners, and the firth woman, at the Run Aintree 10k.

In the Saturday 5k parkruns, Mark Williams was 14th and first VM45 in 25:05 at Bolton parkrun.

Rob Shiels was 14th in 20:47 at Heaton parkrun, Sheila Jones was first VW65 in24:09, Elaine Bailey ran 31:22 and Jen Entwistle clocked 37:00. Cheryl Gallagher finished in 33:49 at Oldham parkrun.

Family of runners. Gary Adkins and his children show off their medals.
