Results for the Shakespeare Marathon and Half Marathon, 07-May-2017

Thanks to Mitch for the following report:

Yet another superbly well organised event today. Cool to start, but soon warmed up. Great support on route, especially on the lap around the town.

He was having a ‘rest day’ today, just doing the full marathon, following his recent spate of midweek ultras. Lost count of the number of times the mere glimpse of a blue and gold vest prompted the question “Where’s Imran today?”.
