The highlight of the Athena running calendar, the St Albans Half Marathon, took place on 9th June 2019. Over 45 Athena Ladies ran in the 5K, Walking Half Marathon, Half Marathon and the 1.5 Mile Fun Run! Each run was cheered on by crowds of supporters and smiling marshals, whilst being taken past the scenic country lanes of St Albans. We had a marquee stocked with prosecco, cake and jelly babies in the Runners Village which was a welcome sight after the races and a perfect way to celebrate lots of PBs (despite the very hot weather!).
The St Albans Half Marathon always has an amazing atmosphere and although slightly hilly, the route never disappoints. It was great to all come together at the end of the run and celebrate our achievement together. A huge thank you to St Albans Half Marathon for hosting such a great event and ordering the sunshine too. See you next year!
