Emma Leads Over 100 Club Members Around Cardiff Half Marathon

The 2014 Cardiff Half Marathon became arguably the most successful race ever in Lliswerry Runners' 30 year history.

Emma Wookey ran a stunning 1hr 15min PB to become the first Welsh lady across the line and without doubt a club record. She was followed by Miles Thomas who also ran a PB, in 1hr 16min.

Club pride didn't end with these great results. Over 100 club members finished the race, which is itself a club record. And still there were members out on the course cheering on what seemed to be every corner of Cardiff.  

Emma enjoying the finish!
