Alan Burgin reports: I ran the Bath HM for the 4th time, the previous three outings being in
the first three years that it was held, 1982,83 & 84. The course is
still the same one, it is just the number of people taking past that has
grown, from somewhere in the region of 2,000 to 15,000 this year.
I had a decent run, 1:47:24 (chip time) to finish 2831/14906 and 12th MV65. I felt this year was far more tiring than previous races here, but that was in another life!
I have attached a few pictures from the 80's. There is a newspaper
cutting of the 1983 start (I am in the picture, it is a "Where's Wally
type of challenge to find me). It rained for the whole race, no chip
times then but I did manage 70:36 for 27th. In 84 I had another good
run, 71: 16 for 50th. (Those times would have placed me 15th and 18th
The entry confirmation for 1983 is interesting, eg £1.50 to enter, and one water station at 10 miles as per AAA rules!
