17.03.2014 - Colchester Half Marathon a great success

Thousands of runners, spectators and volunteers enjoyed bright, sunny conditions yesterday as the 2014 Colchester Half Marathon took place. The route wound through the historic town centre before finishing at the Community Stadium. Around the course, water stations manned by staff and friends of GoodyBurrett ensured that the competitors stayed hydrated - and motivated!

The race was won by Blair McWhirter of Ilford in 1:09:09, with local running legend Adrian Mussett second and David Fewell third. The first lady home was Sarah Stradling.

GoodyBurrett's 'Team GB' runners were ably represented, with James Mattin leading the way and storming through the finish line in a superb time of 1:34:51.

Overall, this was a great day for Colchester and we would like to thank the organisers, volunteers and other sponsors for putting on a great race. Next year is sure to be even bigger and better. Thanks also to our own Catherine Ashton, who con-ordinated the firm's involvement... and took some great pictures too!

A gallery of pictures will soon be available on our Facebook page.
