On Saturday there was a 1/2 marathon, one lap around Halley V and then from Halley V to Halley VI - this was of course symbolic, all running from the old station to the new - although it was straight into the teeth of a 20 knot wind despite the sunshine. Here we all are at the start.
Twenty eight runners, walkers, and skiers. Kirk on the left in shorts, made it about 50 yards until he decided that his attire wasn't warm enough! I have put an arrow to show where I am.
And they are off:
And here I am at about half way. The field has thinned out, so for most of the run it was a lonely and windy run with the buildings of Halley VI not seeming to get any closer.
Overall, a tough run, no personal bests but everyone felt hugely satisfied to have completed the distance.
