Race summary Ever one to throw herself in at the deep end, Canterbury Harriers' newsletter editor Neasa MacErlean made her marathon debut in this low-key race in rural Essex. The course consisted of two eleven-mile loops sandwiched between a three-mile outward section and a 1.25 mile finish and contained a few hills, including a short, sharp one at the end of each loop. In spite of the hills, a gusty wind and the lack of crowd support that the big city marathons provide, Neasa had a very good race to finish in just slightly over five hours.
