3 Invicta men take on hilly half!

 

The 13th of May saw 3 club runners, out of a total field of 248, take on the hilly Deal Half Marathon on a cool but sunny Sunday morning.

 

First man home for Invicta was Trevor Edgley (no 162) in a time of 1:29:53, crossing the line in 22nd place overall, but most importantly 1st in his age group.  Trevor beat the 2nd man in his category by a good 2 minutes, and the 3rd man by an impressive 7 minutes.

 

Next home for Invicta in 95th place overall, was Mark Dawson (no 293) in a time of 1:44:06.  Mark was 30th out of 73 in his category, with 22 rivals jostling for places in the 5 minutes before and after him.

 

Third man over the finish for Invicta was Tim Kerr (no 375), in a time of 1:49:41.  Tim was 16th out of 34 in his age group, and although this was 10 minutes slower than the previous year, he was still pleased to have finished in under 2 hours, having run the Belfast Marathon only 6 days before.
