On the 10th April, Wendy Smith took part in the Belvoir Half Marathon, her second half marathon since joining Grantham Running Club. There are normally about 700 runners for the event though for some reason which the organisers could not understand, there were only 400 entries this year.
On the day the sun was shining, and the course began at the village of Hose, taking on a scenic route through villages in the Vale of Belvoir, which included Harby, Langar, Colston Bassett, Long Clawson and then back Hose.
The course was relatively flat with a couple of inclines, making it ideal for a PB. Wendy ran on behalf of the British Heart Foundation in memory of her Dad who passed away a year ago. Wendy achieved a PB, shaving off over seven minutes from her previous half marathon. She’s now planning her next half!
