Well, it was quite hot yesterday for the Barns Green Half Marathon, apparently the hottest it has ever been ! We managed to get most of the Steyning AC runners together for a group photo before the start đź™‚
For some of the runners it was their first half marathon and for quite a few it was their first time running at Barns Green. The atmosphere is wonderful with plenty for friends and family to do while the runners are busy running. It is a very well organised event with plenty of parking and it was lovely to see so many people out around the route supporting đź™‚
Most of the route is on closed country roads with some of it on tracks and a smallish section over a grass playing field. The route takes you through Christs Hospital on its figure of eight route through Barns Green (this means your friends and family get to see you at the half way point as well as the start and finish !).
For anyone looking for a friendly, local, half marathon this is definitely one to consider đź™‚
