Garden City Runners tame the hills at Watford and Brentwood
PUBLISHED: 11:20 07 February 2020
The Watford Half Marathon provided plenty of obstacles for Garden City Runners to quite literally get over but they still managed to produce some good results.
Rachael Everard admitted how hilly the course was didn't factor into many of the GCR runs.
She said: "I finished in two hours 10 minutes which I'm pretty happy with given the hills. Naturally I started too quickly, underestimated the hills and was flagging by 10 miles."
Despite the ascents there were PBs for Steve Ellerd-Elliott and Peter Jasko while Russell Casey and Sean Bowen beat them to the line, finishing 88th and 123rd respectively.
Hills were also the order of the day for the nine GCRs who took on the Beast of Brentwood Parkrun, described as a muddy, off-road course with lots of ups and downs.
James Huish and Tom Wackett were able to tame it though as they finished second and third.
