After a difficult race Penny Hodges was second GRC female home in a time of 1:41:57. Running for the charity Diabetes UK, Penny raised over £700 for the charity after her son William was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes earlier in the year. Penny commented;
"The race was tougher than expected, but well worth it to raise money and awareness for such a life changing and complicated disease".
In his debut half marathon, newcomer Craig Drury showed potential for a sub 2 hour half in the future, finishing in a time of 02:02:31. Craig joined the club after entering the Great North Run to raise money for Cancer Research, and achieved his goal by raising over £800 for the charity. Craig was followed over the line 15 minutes later by Margaretta Murray who secured the only PB of the day and knocked over 6 minutes from her previous half marathon time.
