Silverstone Half Marathon. Sunday 13th March


The prestigious Silverstone Grand Prix circuit was the venue for one of the key Spring Marathon warm up races.

Newmarket Joggers were strongly represented and chose the “option” tyre. Elite marathoner Martyn Taylor had a favoured grid postion and made it count storming home in an encouraging 1.12.33. Martyn will be looking to enhance his collection of sub 3 hour marathon medals in London in April and appears on course.

Ruth Eberhardt was delighted with her debut time of 1.53.19. Rob Jaina is going to make an impact in the future in endurance events and warmed up with a spirited 1.54.55. Alice Leadbeter is also planning well for London, and was pacing it beautifully to record 2.00.07.   Sandra Jaina came home in 2.07.29.
