Half Marathon Finish

10th July 2017

It was a struggle for some and easier for others but they all had one thing in common – the RNS team each completed the North Lincolnshire Half Marathon.

Colleagues with different levels of fitness and experience enjoyed taking part in the annual event from Quibell Park in Scunthorpe.

The best placed was partner Robert Smith who actually finished 68th overall in a personal best time of 1 hour, 25 minutes and 26 seconds.

“It was to some people’s annoyance as I don’t do that much running!” said Robert.

“I was a little stiff at work on Monday but it was a great event with a good atmosphere and it was nice to see some staff members and clients cheering us on through the pain barrier.

“They used to say ‘it’s the taking part that counts’, which is true until the starting pistol goes and the adrenalin kicks in!”

Next home from the RNS stable was fellow partner Alex Douglas (1:26:12) in 77th place overall.

Jane Harsley, in credit control, also came in under the two-hour barrier (1:59:31).

“It was my first half marathon although I have over last couple of years been tempted to enter,” she said. 

“I really enjoyed it, apart from the last couple of miles being hard, but felt it had a real community spirit to it.” 

Manager Sinéad Hill (2:25:30) said: “I enjoyed the event, although if you asked me that at mile nine I would have said otherwise!

“It was great to see so many friendly races on route, at water stations and at the finish.”

Partner Jenny Camm (2:26:47) and senior partner John Heeney (2:27:49) were followed by partner

Karen Lyth (2:49:00).

She said: “I enjoyed it up to about 11 miles then struggled with the last couple of miles and eventually crossed the finish line. I’m definitely going to keep up the training and have another go next year.”

Trainee chartered accountant Abigail Wilmore (2:53:58) was next and described it as a “fabulous event”.

“It was really well put together, and I look forward to beating my time next year!”

Manager Sarah Dennie (2:54:04) also enjoyed the race.

“My time isn’t as quick as I’d hoped for but given it was my first half marathon it gives me something to aim for next time,” she said.


Completing the 10-person team finish was Hayley Barber (2:57:04).
