RESULTS – The Lichfield Half-Marathon – 1st May 2016
HAWKES SWOOPS TO SNATCH HALF MARATHON TITLE
Tipton Harriers’ Stewart Hawkes romped home in the cold dry and windy conditions at the 6th Lichfield Half Marathon today in a time of 1:12:35. He was nearly 5 minutes quicker than his club mate and KP Events ambassador Phil Clamp running his first ever half marathon in his long and successful running career in a creditable 1:17:10, and he was clear of third placed Gavin Kennedy in 1:18:01.
First female home was Preston Harrier Nichola Jackson in 1:26:45 with Melissa Venable second in 1:30:24 and Emma Langdell third in 1:32:14.
Over eleven hundred runners entered to run the race, with a remarkable turn out of supporters around the 13 mile course and hundreds at the Stowe Field finish ensured that the event was a memorable occasion for all involved.
