Sharon Barlow and Tori Green were in action at the Robin Hood Half marathon this weekend. The course itself is great for both seasoned runners and beginners alike – for beginners whose key objective is to complete the course, to more regular long-distance event runners, looking to beat their personal best time. It is a single lap 13.1 mile (21.1km) traffic-free course. The race starts and finishes in Victoria Embankment and is undulating so not all flat, there are a couple of inclines at the start of the route when runners legs are more up for it (mile 2, 4 and 6).
A picturesque route taking you along Victoria Embankment, River Trent, past Nottingham Castle, Robin Hood statue, The Park and Wollaton Park where you’re bound to see a few Deer roaming. Finishing on Victoria Embankment Recreating ground next to the River Trent.
Sharon finished 1st in the ladies race in a super quick 79.32 with Tori in an equally impressive 80.37. Terrific running by the duo.
