Roding Valley Half Marathon

Promoted by Woodford Green AC with Essex Ladies

Sunday 3rd March 2019, starting at 9am

Ashton Playing Fields, Chigwell Road, Woodford Green IG8 8AA

Thanks to all of you who took part in the race this year.  I hope you enjoyed it, despite the rain.  You will hopefully have seen your result (if not it can be accessed via the button on the left).  I have had one or two requests to edit names which were mis-typed in the entries on the day, so if you have any questions on your time, please let me know.

There was one chip which failed to record properly and this actually belonged to the winner of the over 40 Women category, so sorry for the lady who may have though she’d won that for a few minutes!  There was also a “rogue result” in the over 50 men, but this was a result of the runner finishing a lap early, so his result was changed to “DNF”.

This year marked the 30th time I have organised the race and the 39th overall.  I am conscious that there are an increasing number of races vying for your entry, including some new “mega races” and I may consider moving the race date either slightly or to the autumn to try and find a less crowded time.  Whatever is decided, thanks once again for your support and please look out for the announcements for next year’s race.

Finally I would like to thank our sponsors, Haslers, for their ongoing support.  I would also like to thank Loughton Self Hire for the use of a van to transport the water and tables to the feeding stations.
