White Horse Half Marathon
|Date:||07th Apr 2013|
"After interminable months of poor and bitterly cold weather, the 31st running of the White Horse Half Marathon, incorporating the Oxfordshire County Half Marathon Championships and also constituting one of the events in the 2013 Oxfordshire Grand Prix calendar, took place as scheduled yesterday amidst bright sunshine and warm temperatures in Grove, Oxfordshire. This window in the weather encouraged a sizeable crowd of spectators making the most of the welcome turn in the weather to gather at the finish and cheer the runners home."
On Facebook, Adrienne Hopkins writes: "What an awesome medal haul this morning and storming start to the Grand Prix series!"
The "medal haul" for individuals is given in the table below. If you got a pb, please add that to the end of your row of the table or e-mail me and I'll do it.
For the race itself, the HRR men obtained the 2nd team prize (Richard Skilbeck, Fergus Campbell, Yiannis Fitsakis and Ian Meadowcroft). And the HRR women obtained both the 1st team prize (Eirini Flouri, Adrienne Hopkins and Judith Kalthoff) and the 2nd team prize (Sarah Farrow, Nicola Smith and Charlotte Noakes).
There were similar prizes and the same winning runners for the Oxfordshire Championships: the men's team obtained the Silver prize and the women's teams obtained the Gold and Silver prizes.
