Marathons are now a weekly event for Moreton-in-Marsh based Steve Edwards as he keeps to his intensive world record challenge programme.
Sunday 13th September 2009 saw him racing in Nottingham in the Experian Robin Hood Festival of Running.

This is a scenic course around the city centre and Steve was wearing race number 10597 in the colours of Bourton Roadrunners.

Here is his race report:-
“I hadn’t done the Robin Hood event since 2005 and the first half of the course had changed significantly being more undulating than I had known it previously. However, having ran the event 15 times prior to yesterday, I still managed to record my best ever time on this course of 3:01:55 finishing 3rd V45 and 43rd out of a field of over 1300 finishers, so top 4%.
Again, it was so close to that 3 hour barrier, (must try harder!)  Seriously though, I was never really on for breaking 3 hours having gone through half way in 1:30:40 and hitting the notorious headwind along the water park at 19 miles losing a bit more time, I reached 20 miles in 2:19 and although I ran pretty strongly right to the end, it was never going to be enough. However I’m still pleased to be keeping this consistent run of results going and all well under the target time. That’s 5 sub 3:05s in 7 weeks now, just hope I can maintain it, Anglesey next Sunday.”
