Once again Annie Kisluk and David Goodyear represented our great club at the marathon distance. This time in the award winning city of culture, Hull. Despite many places experiencing torrential rain, Hull pulled perfect, if not a little warm at times, running conditions out of the bag for this year’s 26.2-mile route around the city which started on the Humber Bridge, before winding its way around the iconic city and eventually directing its 2,000 competitors to the finish line in East Park.
Organisers decided that art, music and culture would still be part of the focus for the race.
Lucas Meagor, race director, said: “It’s been important to ensure the event retains a Hullcentric feel and showcases the city while meeting the needs of its residents. The second half of the course took in Hull Marina, Humber Street in the city centre passing the Three Ships Mural, through Victoria Dock and past The Blade at Siemans then along part of the Sculpture Trail before returning to Garden Village with a loop around East Park taking runners to a finish south of the boating lake. Once again taking in artwork installations within every mile of the course, these were created from rubbish cleared from the route beforehand and turned into 3D images reflecting the cities maritime heritage. With the tag line #LoveHullHateLitter. Another 26.2 miler in the bag for this relentless partnership. Annie Finished in 4:32:33 and David 5:00:46 – a big well done to you both!
