FRECKLETON HALF MARATHON by Gemma Lysycia

Sunday 22nd June 2014 Located just north of Preston, Freckleton is a beautiful area and this year was the 50th anniversary of the event. It was clearly signposted, with car parking attendants and free parking in a local field. The atmosphere was electric with multiple stalls selling baked goods. It was also very friendly orientated with a fun run for children. The main race itself started at 2pm and meandered around the villages and countryside of the area. Thankfully there were water stations with showers and sponges every 2.5 miles. Surprisingly, not one toilet on the course!

The course was predominantly flat so I would imagine an opportunity to obtain a PB if it wasn't for the heat.
Post race goodies included a medal, banana, water, tea, orange juice and a towel. Lovely feel to the event and one which I will definitely be doing next year. I would encourage fellow A&T'ers to give it a go. Gemma Lysycia
