ATHLETICS: Sleaford half dozen run at Milton Keynes

Six Sleaford Town Runners took part in the Milton Keynes Marathon and Half Marathon on Bank Holiday Monday.

It was an extremely well organised event with the first part of the marathon on closed roads. The second half took runners through some parks as well up and down a few motorway underpasses before heading to the finish which was a lap of the pitch at the MK Dons Football Stadium.

Angie Freemantle ran the half marathon and finished in a time of 1hr 52min 56sec. Her clubmates all ran the full 26.2 miles. Finishing times were Paul Freemantle 4:29:45, Sarah Wharton 4:55:16, Jayne MacArthur 5:10:42, Helen Barker 6:32:06 and Shaun Louth 6:32:07.
