Sarah Rawlings travelled to Retford, also known as East Retford, a market town in the Bassetlaw District in Nottinghamshire for the Retford half marathon. Organised by Retford Athletics Club, the route has many flat sections, offering runners the chance of a good race time. Runners start and finish at Retford Oaks Academy, Babworth Road. Held under UK Athletics Rules, this popular event attracts approximately 1200 entrants each year and is a key fixture for seasoned runners from across Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire, as well as for others who are taking part in their first half-marathon. Many runners also use it as a warm up to the London Marathon in April. Sarah finished the race in 2:02:31 and received an additional reward of two smoke alarms from Nottinghamshire Fire Brigade who were also in attendance! Well done, great running Sarah!
