Strathaven Striders 'Run with the Wind' Half Marathon 2018

Results here...

Magnus and Kenny were through at Strathaven for this years Run with the Wind Half Marathon, a good checkpoint on how the training is progressing on the way to Spring Marathons.

Benign conditions this year, in what can sometimes be a windswept and snowy course climbing up to and passing the Whitelees Wind Farm, on the south edge of East Kilbride.
A tough course, with a couple of long draggy climbs, but enough downhills to recover on and get some faster splits back in the bag again.

Magnus - another HM PB, at 1:26:40 and 20th place; a strong, well paced run...

Kenny - possibly a PB (?) in 1:26:02, and chasing down the overall V50 winner at the finish, but coming up 5 secs short.

Definitely a recommended race, with good organisation and catering post race....
