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.
