Josh and Anna complete the Southampton Half Marathon

Well done to Josh and Anna, who both took part in the Southampton Half-Marathon yesterday and finished with excellent times.

Josh completed the half marathon in 1:36:02, placing 276th out of 3750 participants. Anna finished in 01:52:41, placing 1101th out of 3750 participants.

The half-marathon started on the High Street, shortly after 10am, with the course taking in a range of the city’s highlights, including the gruelling Itchen Bridge, a packed Riverside Park and even an inspiring detour alongside the pitch at St Mary’s stadium, home to Southampton Football Club. Runners finished outside Southampton’s Guildhall, where they were given their goodie bags, bananas and alcohol free beer!

Despite feeling very sore today, Josh and Anna are still over the moon with their achievement and can’t wait to take part again next year.
