Silverstone Half Marathon tomorrow

First race of the year and I’ve not really trained for it, I’m using it more as part if my Brighton Marathon training and to test things out for race day. I’d still like to beat my 1hr44min Half marathon PB.


I’m nervous about the weather currently. The course is flat as a result of it being an F1 circuit, only around 60m of elevation across the entire course. Due to it being flat and in the countryside it’s quite exposed to the elements, so wind and rain on the day could impact any goal time quite notably. I’ll just find a someone bigger than I am to slipstream! Before then, I’ll be praying that the little bit of rain free cloud is in place for race start at noon.

Also hoping for good weather so my ever-supportive wife isn’t stuck out on her own watching me in the wind and rain.

Hoping for good weather for all runners this weekend. If you’re racing, good luck and run long and strong!
