Newport Half Marathon
Thirteen plucky runners from the Forest of Dean Athletic Club took part in the City of Newport half-marathon last weekend.
There were strong performances across a number of categories and three runners featured in the top 20 senior runners of the 1931 finishers who managed the race in quite challenging conditions.
Cory Sherwin (13th) finished in 1:19:44, Lee Kibble (19th) was exactly one minute behind and Andy Raynor (18th) took just one second more to finish in 1:20:45
Runners Cherry Fowler, Female Vet 40 came fourth in her category whilst Andrew Kaye managed 10th in the Male 50 group.
All enjoyed the experience which was well supported by many foresters despite the intemperate weather
