For the fourth year in a row the Hitchin Hard Half Marathon started and finished in the grounds of Hitchin Priory.
It's been around for a lot longer though, you can read the full history www.h3m.co.uk
Having missed last year through injury I decided to run two half marathons in three weeks.
So, having conquered St Albans half marathon (highly recommended and challenging event) I was really looking forward to a gentle trot around the Hertfordshire countryside.
It was a bit on the warm side for me at 17 degrees at the gun and humid but the predicted rain was most welcome and so came in at a respectable (for me) 1:50 47.
Always time for a few 'selfies' though and plenty more pics can be found at hertfordshiremercury.co.uk
Anyway enough waffle from me, to see the results go to www.stuweb.co.uk
All in all a big 'well done' to Hitchin Tilehouse Rotary for orgainising the event, with the help of their local sponsors
See you all next year
