Race Date: Sunday 3rd September 2017
The Northampton Half Marathon is only in it’s fourth year but is well on the way to establishing itself as the town’s showcase running event. The Town Centre start in the shadow of The Guildhall loops out to the race course, before taking in the Shoemakers Museum and the Theatre before heading out of town for some picturesque countryside running and an inspiring finish on the front lawn at Delapre Abbey.
The 2017 running saw unattached Peter Tucker romp home first in a time of 1:12:44, and first lady over the line was Kirstie Sharman of Bedford Harriers AC in a time of 1:25:22. Club interest in the race came in the form of Richard Pegg, taking every opportunity to improve on his current third position in the Long Distance Strider stakes in posting a time of 1:44:07. Congratulations Peggy!
