Despite the low number of Club Runners the average finish time was still below the UK average for a Half Marathon. Here’s the supporting evidence and more detail of how it compares to other Half Marathons:
2:01:22 Average Finish Time (all runners) - this is slightly slower (38 secs) than the average for a UK Half Marathon (2:02:00)
