Runners from the north of England and further afield met at Haworth Primary School on a bright morning with almost no wind. Times were fast in the good conditions and Mick Coe made quick work of the half marathon route finishing 21st of 246 in the excellent time of 2:00:52. The full marathon was also competitive with an exceptionally strong vets field. Carl Heron improved on a time set in the extreme heat of 2012 to finish 47th of 179 in 4:10:09 while Anna Smith felt better after some biscuits at mile 21 and went on to finish 110th in 5:02:48. As usual all aspects of the event were superbly organised and competitors enjoyed routes over some of the most beautiful local landscape.
