‘Maidenhead’ Half Marathon

Due to reduced entries this year, the organisers switched the event from the closed-road Maidenhead loop to four laps of Dorney Lake! Using the event a marathon-paced training runs, Terry Booth (48th in 1:25:37) and Ben Gilmore (64th in 1:29:14) sliced their way through the field in the latter stages as late-summer heat took its toll on the majority of the competitors.
