Foulees Agenaises Half Marathon
12th September


Official Result

Bob Wells 1.30.37

I ran the Agen Half Marathon yesterday ( as final preparation for the RNR although I'm not sure the temperature of 32C (89F in old money) was ideal for that.

Very pleased with my position - 17th overall (out of 226) and 1st V60 (4 minutes faster than 1st V50) but disappointed by my time of 1-30-37 which does not bode well for a sub-3 Toulouse Marathon in October.

This is not a race worth travelling to France to enter. Although there were some very attractive bits of the (two-lap) course along the canal and over the aqueduct there were lots of obstructions particularly unmarked bollard, potholes and kerbs in some of the narrow town streets (fortunately closed to traffic.

This is the first race ever where I have had to pay (1 euro) to use the baggage store.  Perhaps the Harriers should charge for using the loos at the Bedford Half.
