Gareth races at Silverstone - on foot!

Wed 25th March 2009

Gareth Howell recently competed in his first Half Marathon - around Silverstone’s GP circuit - in preparation for this year’s Flora London Marathon on April the 26th.

A three time BTCC winner at the venue, Gareth said after the run, “It was certainly a view of Silverstone I’ve never had before, I noticed a hell of a lot more hills that I’d never realised were there! It was all new to be running with so many thousands of people but good practice for the big one at the end of April. I was pleased with my time though and the organisers put on a great event in the sunshine.”

With a month of training to go Gareth is still trying to raise as much money as possible for his charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

“Its nerve racking thinking of running all that way but hopefully all the training of the last 3 months in the snow and cold will pay off!”
