Stroud Half-marathon
Date:25 Oct 2015
Distance:1/2 Marathon
Type:Road
Comments:Lovely autumnal drive over the Cotswolds. This is a traditional no-nonsense half in its 34th year. Going out of town along the valley, it remains fairly flat until a climb between 6 and 7 miles. It's not a huge hill, but it always seems to define the race for me, feeling fresh up until that point, and then hanging on for the rest of the race. Once beyond the hill, there is a one mile loop around an industrial estate before the run in back to town. At about mile twelve there is a challenging little climb which is unwelcome. I must stress though that it is a fairly flat and fast course. Decent hot showers at the end and a free milkshake and technical t-shirt.
