RRR, Tam Ryan also completed a half marathon on Sunday, 5th October: the Basingstoke Half Marathon. This race incorporated a number of challenging hills in Cliddesden and Farleigh Wallop and boasted some beautiful countryside and quaint villages south of Basingstoke. Tam described it as ‘a very hilly half but lovely and scenic with an enjoyable last 3-4 miles which was mainly flat or down hill all the way to the finish. It was well organised and very friendly, with plenty of support from the locals in the villages’. Tam finished in a time of 1:34:41, placing her 17th lady.
