CRC’s Jim Scott took part in the inaugural Severn Bridge half marathon along with 2000 other runners on Sunday 24th August.
Scott ran a strong race and finished in an excellent time of 1:43:34. This was Scott’s first race in the M60 category, and he stormed it by coming 8th of 51 runners in his category. He was 425th of the 2000 starters. Top effort!
Scott reports, “Starting on the bridge with 2000 runners was a novel experience. The wind was light which was lucky as it is an exposed spot. We crossed the bridge to the English side and then followed undulating lanes including one hill before re-crossing to finish in the outskirts of Chepstow. Good goody bag and teeshirt and chunky medal, so it’s an event worth doing in my view. I particularly enjoyed driving back over the bridge after finishing and passing hundreds of runners still to finish!”
A fantastic result- well done Jim!
