The results from the 2008 New Forest Half Marathon are in and yet again they prove the superiority of the average Curry Club Runner. Despite having an average age of 44, six years greater than the average half marathon runner, the Curry Club runners achieved an average race time of 1 hour 54 minutes compared to the half marathon average of just over 2 hours. Even better, the Curry Club “team” came in 16th out of 17th official teams competing.

The results were as follows :

579 Nigel Payne 01:50:53
623 Jeremy Marden 01:51:57
658 Richard Newsom 01:52:57
932 Russ Lomax 01:59:45

Four plucky curry club runners took part in this year’s New Forest Half Marathon.  Despite the unseasonally warm weather, good times were recorded by all, although no official timings have been released yet.  Nigel led the pack home in 1 hour 51 minutes, followed by Jerry, Richard and Russ all under two hours.  No injuries to report.
The course changes were well received with fewer miles on busy roads.  The course was as hilly as ever, as witnessed by the course profile shown below.
