The Needles Half is a fantastic race, one of the most beautiful routes you could run anywhere, and we are lucky enough to have it here on the Island.
Don’t be deceived though. Those beautiful views of our fantastic coastline make for a beast of a course, climbing from sea level up over Headon Warren, back down and then up over Tennyson.
The early rain had made conditions more humid, and it was another hot race, not what you need when you tackle the amount of elevation that the Needles course delivers.
A special mention goes out to Louis Forster, John Newsham and Carolyn Littleton who ran all 3 distances over the weekend, a great effort.
Louis came home first for the IWRR in 5th place, just 3 minutes before dad Tom, both the Forster’s won their age categories. Nick Kenney complete the first men’s triple in 14th place.
For the girls Hayley Baxter stormed home as the 3rd lady overall. Chani Jones and Charlotte Dollery completed the first set of ladies home. Both Hayley and Lucy placed 2nd in their age categories.
