On your marks, get set....GO YEOVIL (again) !!

Posted: 13th March 2012

We are delighted to be sponsoring Midwest Radio’s coverage of the Yeovil Half Marathon again in 2012.

This year’s event will take place on Sunday 25 March starting and finishing at Huish Park, home of Yeovil Town Football Club.

Last year’s inaugural event was hailed as a big success. Out of 700 entries there were 625 finishers. Ellie Sutcliffe of Exmouth Harriers led the women with a time of just over 88 minutes whilst Allister Sheffield of Team Bath was mens and overall winner with a time of under 73 minutes.

There will be a mass start at 9:00. The route is very much the same as last year. The organisers are looking for volunteers to be safety marshals or to man drinks stations.

As last year, it’s a perfect warm up for the London Marathon. Michael Williamson is reported to be searching out his trainers even now...
