Farnborough Half Marathon

In its 4th year and at the home of the famous air show Farnborough half marathon has quickly one of the biggest winter halfs in the country with over 2300 athletes competing. It was here that Ross Wilkes went in search of a quick time to start his 2020 race calender year. A flat and fast route with only a couple of slight, short inclines the course starts from the old airship hangar and doing a lap of the nearby airport before heading west toward Fleet, looping down to Aldershot and heading home.

Starting fast to settle into a spot, Ross went into the first 8 miles steady before pushing forward the final 4. Knowing with a couple of miles left a PB would be on the cards it would be a question of how much time he could take off. Ross finally crossed the finish line in 1.20.50 in 60th place taking nearly 3 minutes of his PB.
