Brass Monkey Half Marathon - 23 Jan 2011

Dave Turnbull finishes in 4th placeSunday 23rd January was the 29th running of the Brass Monkey Half Marathon and perfect conditions greeted the six Holmfirth Harriers that made the trip to York. The race sold out within five hours this year and is used by many as part of there training preperation for a spring marathon.


David Turnbull last ran this race and the half marathon distance in January 2009 and since that day has suffered a frustrating injury hit two years. Well into his London Marathon training Turnbull ran a strong race and showed that he is in good shape recording a PB of 69:53 and finishing in fourth place. Next home for the Harriers was Alistair Langron who will start his preperation for Edinburgh Marathon next month. Alistair ran a time of 76:15 and will be looking forward to building on this over the coming months. John Philpott, also in preperation for the London Marathon was next back in a time of 91:43 followed closely by Liz Woodfield in 93:27. Matthew Rose smashed his previous best over the distance and recorded a time of 96:34. Again Matthew will be looking to build on this ready for the London Marathon in April. The final club member home was Tim Cock who ran well in a time of 114:01.
