Wirral Half Marathon 2013

Congratulations to all those who took part in the Wirral Half Marathon and 10K races, many of them running for worthy causes. The threat of rain didn’t dampen the spirits of the 1,700 runners who competed in the half marathon, or those of the 1,000 who entered the 10K event. Martin Swensson won the half marathon, while Jenny Cole was the fastest woman. Some of the others looked pretty exhausted after a few hundred yards, but it’s the taking part that counts! A star of the 10K race was 90 year old Eddy Mountford, who successfully completed the course. Here are some photos of the event.
