Hundreds turn out for half marathon

POURING rain didn?t prevent more than 1,200 people from turning out for the Henley half marathon on Sunday.

POURING rain didn?t prevent more than 1,200 people from turning out for the Henley half marathon on Sunday.

Organisers said it was the wettest ever event and it was only the second time in 31 years that it had rained during the race.

They had expected a record 2,000 entrants but the downpours made hundreds of people drop out and only 1,273 people completed the half marathon while another 493 took part in the accompanying Henley Standard 10km.

The prize-giving ceremony had to be cancelled due to the poor weather.

Peter Wilkinson, who organised the event on behalf of the Rotary Club of Henley Bridge, said: ?A lot of people who had pre-registered didn?t turn up.

?We had about 1,900 advance entries and some who came on the day so several hundred dropped out.

?It seems fairly typical that although people pay in advance and put it in their diaries, for various reasons a lot of them don?t make it.

?The rain gods did us no favours but we were surprised by the number of entries on the day because that?s very weather-dependent.

?On the streets of Henley and on the towpath there?s normally a lot of people out jogging and I suppose they are the ones who don?t mind the rain.?

Mr Wilkinson said that he had never experienced such poor conditions since the rotary club took over the event in 2003 and previous organiser Tony Hobbs also couldn?t remember such a wet day.

He said the day had still been enjoyable and estimated it will have raised about £20,000 for the RNLI and other local charities.

Large crowds of family and friends, many of whom carried umbrellas, cheered the competitors as they set off from Borlase Field, next to Henley Rugby Club, and again when they crossed the finish line.

The course had been altered slightly at the Flower Pot pub in Aston, so competitors had to run a lap of the field at the beginning.

Twenty members of The Henley College?s Wasps Academy rugby squad handed out medals and goody bags at the finish line.

There was a new champion after seven-times winner Ben Reynolds, 49, of Vicarage Road, Henley, dropped out at the last minute because he was suffering from a cold.

Julian Lings, 27, from Hertfordshire, finished in one hour, 11 minutes and 18 seconds.

He was more than two minutes ahead of runner-up Matt Hawcroft, who finished in one hour, 13 minutes and 27 seconds. Chris Oddy was third in a time of one hour, 17 minutes and 32 seconds.

Mr Lings? success came despite not having run in a half marathon for more than a year.

He said: ?My time was six seconds short of my personal best but you?ve got that whacking big hill, which is quite tasty.

?Matt led off with a nice pace and I knew the wind would be a factor in the first half of the race.

?He was starting to struggle a little bit so I went for it on the hill. Luckily, I?m from Sheffield originally so it?s not that big a hill for me. ?When you haven?t won for a while you wonder whether you can still do it so it?s good to remind yourself how it feels.?

Luc Jolly, from Harpsden, recorded a personal best time of one hour, 18 minutes and 51 seconds to finish fourth ? one place better than last year.

The 31-year-old used the event as training for the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc, which involves running the entire mountain and climbing 9,600m while passing through France, Switzerland and Italy.

He said: ?Last year the conditions were amazing but this year was very wet and cold so it was hard work.

?To get a personal best time was very pleasing. It would have been nice to finish in the top three but I?m getting one place better each year so, who knows, maybe next year.?

Nikki Gray, 29, from Arborfield, was the fastest woman with a time of one hour, 29 minutes and 12 seconds.

Jack Brandis, of Western Road, Henley, won the under-18 male category in one hour, 38 minutes and 56 seconds.

Klara Fine, from Chapel Row, was the fastest under-18 female with a time of one hour, 52 minutes and 51 seconds.

The fastest man aged over 50 was Chris Rose, from Burnham, who came home in one hour, 28 minutes and 59 seconds.

Jane Davies, from Goring, won the equivalent female category in a time of one hour, 30 minutes and 40 seconds.

Jamie Motterma, 16, a student at Shiplake College, won the under-18s male category in a time of one hour, 36 minutes and 40 seconds.

The minimum age for the half marathon is 16 but 14-year-old Gillotts School pupils Jordan Poulos and Aneith Singh were allowed to take part because they had been running eight miles in training.

Jordan, of Greys Road, finished in one hour, 50 minutes and 34 seconds but his friend Aneith, from Sonning Common, took another 56 minutes after jarring his knee near the Flower Pot.

He limped the last mile with the help of Henley air cadets before collapsing at the finish line.

Aneith was checked over by representatives from St John Ambulance before having lunch with the cadets at the rugby club.

Jordan?s father Darrel, who greeted Aneith at the finish line, praised his determination.

He said: ?I thought it was courageous, if not stubborn stupidity, to carry on. He made it with absolute tenacity.?

Aneith said he was annoyed by his injury as he had wanted to achieve a good time.

He said: ?I had to stop for five minutes when I twisted my knee but managed to just about carry on. I?d been training for two months and was determined to finish.

?A lot of people were cheering me on and trying to pick me up. The crowd made me carry on. If they weren?t there I wouldn?t have.?

Aneith had to take several days off school this week because he couldn?t walk properly.

Jordan said it felt ?special? to be the youngest competitor in the half marathon. ?It was something that I had built up to and was a great thing to achieve,? he said.

The 10km title was retained by Matthew Davenport, from Maidenhead, in a time of 36 minutes and 35 seconds.

His victory came despite being taken the wrong way round the field by the lead bike as he approached the finish line.

Caroline Hoskins, 45, of Waterman?s Road, Henley, was the first woman home in 44 minutes and 20 seconds.

Mrs Hoskins, a grandmother who works as a credit controller, said: ?I did the half marathon 15 years ago and was the first woman but I haven?t done the 10km for a long time.

?It was a good race but hard. It?s brilliant winning the category, which is what I wanted to do. I?m at my peak fitness at the moment.?

Matthew Rainbow, of Reading Road, Henley, was the fastest under-18 male in 38 minutes, while Kate Dear, of Harcourt Close, Henley, won the equivalent female race in one hour and five minutes.

The under-15 male race was won by Tom Hesketh, of Greys Hill, Henley, in a time of 46 minutes and the fastest female was Emily Jones, from Fleet, in 55 minutes. Six-year-old Lizzie Mae Ryan, from Henley, is believed to have been the youngest competitor in the 10km.

The Sacred Heart pupil ran alongside her mother Emma and finished in one hour, 37 minutes and 50 seconds. She raised £150 for the school?s parent-teacher association.

Mrs Ryan said: ?I?m the proudest mum in history ? six miles for six years isn?t bad. We didn?t stop once and had a sweet at every kilometre marker.?

Some runners wore fancy dress, including soldiers from the 11th Training Batallion at Arborfield Garrison. Dressed in character onesies, including Batman, Superman and a penguin, they started the race together and ended with a sprint finish.

A number of schools had representatives taking part in one race or the other. The team from Sacred Heart Primary School in Henley included 61 parents, teachers and pupils, who all ran in red T-shirts sponsored by the Henley Chiropractic Clinic.

Headteacher Karen Edwards ran dressed as a meerkat and parents Debbie Robinson and Lisa Weatherley ran together three-legged.

They raised at least £7,500 to refurbish a key stage one area in the school and the final total is expected to rise by another £1,000.

Five-times Olympic skier Graham Bell, of New Street, had trained the runners and cycled the course alongside them for encouragement.

Kirsty Grant, a governor and parent, said: ?It was fantastic being part of such a big team. It was three times the size we?ve had in previous years and we raised a phenomenal amount. The whole school got behind us and we had parents standing in the pouring rain with children cheering us down Fair Mile.

?We were quite a spectacle with our red T-shirts and on the way round I heard people saying, ?gosh, there?s a lot of people running from Sacred Heart?.? Ten pupils from Trinity primary ran alongside 12 parents and friends in the 10km and raised about £6,000 for the Sue Ryder hospice at Nettlebed.

They were running in memory of Ian Phillips, who died of oesophageal cancer in June, aged 42. Mr Phillips, of Nicholas Road, won the 10km in 2011 and taught cycling proficiency at the school. His children Sammy, 10, and Zuzu, nine, were among the runners. Sammy said he had been thinking about his father during the race.

?My dad was very special to me and I think he would have been proud of me,? he said. ?He had been hoping to run the 10km this year.?

Valley Road primary raised more than £800 for the parent- teacher association after 17 parents ran in one or other race. All those who took part in the half marathon finished in under two hours and 10 minutes. Kerry Emanuel, of Greys Road, Henley, said: ?It was really good despite the rain, wind and puddles and there was a great atmosphere all along the route.

There were three people in the group who were doing it for the first time so they did great. Everyone finished, which was the main thing.

?It?s great to come together to do something for the school and I think it?s important for the children to see their parents running and raising money for the school.?

Kay Fox, 31, a nurse for the Henley and Nettlebed district nursing team, raised £500 towards a specialist wheelchair for her boyfriend?s sister Penny Froude, who has rheumatoid arthritis.

She said: ?It costs £8,000 but social services would only give her £2,000 for a chair that?s not fit for purpose. It really riled me so I decided to run four half marathons to raise some extra money.?
