Running a good half marathon time is something every runner has on their 'To Do' list. Whether it’s a trail race or a road race, a 13.1 mile half marathon is the natural next step up from 10k, and one of the classic benchmarks to test yourself against. It's long enough to be a true test of fitness, stamina, pacing, form and mental strength, but short enough to be within reach of anyone willing to train consistently for a couple of months. Appealingly for many runners, a ‘cheeky half’ doesn’t demand the long weekend training runs of a full marathon.
