Tunbridge wells half marathon results

Ten 7oaks tri club members enjoyed good running conditions for Tunbridge wells half marathon on Sunday, although it may have been slightly chilly for the many spectators and bands. Famed for the scenic and challenging route (the 300 foot ascent of Spring Hill at Fordcombe is to be mentioned), meticulous organisation, value for money and friendly marshals, it was voted the ‘Most Improved Race in the UK’ in 2009 and was voted the No.2 Half Marathon in the UK in 2011 by Runner’s World readers. 

It is one of the biggest events in the UK organised by a running club and Tunbridge Wells Harriers are very proud to have hosted the event for over 30 years.

Kelly Holmes said a few words at the start line and mentioned that she will be running the London marathon. She sounded the fog horn for the start and then joined in with the 1673 runners!
