Niki's Half Marathon Success

Niki's Half Marathon Success

Operations Manager, Niki, took on the challenge of Cardiff half marathon, finishing with an impressive time of one hour, 29 minutes and 27 seconds, coming first in her age category - an amazing achievement!

"I was hoping for sub one hour, 30 minutes, and was delighted to achieve that, just sneaking in at one hour, 29 minutes and 27 seconds, winning my age category (first female veteran over 50 out of over 600 in that category).
I was 33rd female out of nearly 10,000 women running the race. The Cardiff Half Marathon also incorporated the Welsh Half Marathon Championship so I will shortly be awarded with a gold medal for winning my age category. This completes a good year for me, having recently been selected to represent my country in the British & Irish Masters cross-country running championship in Derry in November. Sadly I won't be able to put on the Welsh vest for this race as I'll be in Nepal and Bhutan - a recce trip with Mountain Kingdoms for two new exciting treks!"
