Results for Abingdon marathon, 20-Oct-2013
Four Sphinx AC runners took part in this PB-friendly marathon in Oxfordshire. The course is largely flat – the steepest slope was the exit from an underpass. There are a few stretches of off-road but even so, this race truly lives up to its “PB-friendly” reputation. Starting and finishing on a running track, the course takes you through both urban areas (including the town centre) and scenic country paths. The huge number of marshals were all extremely encouraging and enthusiastic and the local support was terrific too. A proper runners’ run and one that every marathon-capable Sphinx runner should consider.
