Record year at Bath Half Marathon

It's been a record year at Bath Half Marathon with the British stealing the show in the elite field taking first place in the men's and women's races. For the first time in 12 years a British male took the top spot, with Paul Martelletti finishing the 13.1 mile course in 65 minutes and 28 seconds.

I struggled on the second lap and the wind was quite strong and that didn’t help, but the crowd were so supportive throughout and really spurred me on to the finish.

Nearly 13,000 runners pounded the streets of Bath in the half marathon. Almost 1,000 runners took part in the family fun run while over 30,000 people turned out to support the runners.
