Maidenhead Half a big success
Local families, friends, fundraisers and seasoned athletes laced up their trainers to take part in the Maidenhead Half Marathon on Sunday 6 September, hosted by Purple Patch Running. There was abundant enthusiasm for the race, as well as the mini and micro marathons, and they did not disappoint!
Maidenhead was blessed with sunshine and the race village atmosphere was incredible, with a fun and energetic musical warm up before the half marathon wheelchair race began at 9.15am. Not long after over 2,000 half marathon runners gathered and the start line was alive with energy thanks to Helen Willetts, Broadcast Meteorologist for the BBC.
