I took part in the MK reimagined half marathon this morning.
Rather than being a truely virtual event (although that was an option) for this one there was a set route and two weeks in which to run it and upload the results. There is an app which talks you through the route and records your time as you go and signage on the route.
Apart from the cost 😱 I have to say I think they have done an fantastic job. I was kinda dreading the drudge around MK but they found a route around parks and along canals and rivers which made it a very beautiful choice.
As today was day one there were a number of runners on the route which was nice as it made it more sociable than it might have been. The supporters were also very enthusiastic for those of us out there.
Andy ran with me (well, he may as well) and we finished in 2.06.36 which meant he smashed his pb by over 9 minutes!
