PLANETS Well Represented at the Bournemouth Marathon Festival!

This was the second ever Bournemouth Marathon Festival and as last year, PLANETS had runners representing us on both days!  The weekend started with the 10K on Saturday afternoon.  After a blustery morning, the clouds gave way to beautiful sunshine and Abby and Scott McCabe ran in perfect conditions starting the festival off well for us.  The husband and wife team crossed the line in 1hr 9 minutes which was a very respectable time given that Abby had never run this distance before.  Sunday morning was equally perfect conditions for the half marathon, cool, crisp and still, the sun was shining and Kimmy Douglas and Julie Laming were all set for a great race.  Both girls put in fantastic performances finishing in 2hrs 7mins and 1hr 48mins respectively.  This was Julie’s first half marathon so we reckon she has a bit more to give, especially as she looked so fresh crossing the finishing line!!

Last up was Steve Davis who was taking on the full 26.2 miles.  Thankfully, unlike last year, the temperature did not continue to rise so with the cool air and little wind, conditions were ideal.  Steve put in a great performance and although he claims to have found the last few miles tough, his time of 4hrs 16 minutes was solid and respectable.  Well done Steve!

Thank you to all our runners for representing us and raising funds for PLANETS, we are very grateful and hope you are having a restful week after all your efforts!
