Mr Hutchinson & The Hull Marathon
As readers of our Blog, Twitter
and Facebook accounts will know Mr Chris Hutchinson Director and Solicitor at
our Beverley Office took part in the Hull Marathon on Sunday 13th
September to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Society. We are very
happy to say that not only did Chris complete the gruelling 26.2 miles but he
survived to tell the tale and here is his story in his own words:-
waiting calmly, if somewhat nervously, with the other 1100 runners for the race
to begin, it was probably a very good thing that I could not foresee the
suffering to be undergone at about mile 17 or 18 when my erstwhile trusty legs
had turned to lead and I could not imagine how they were going to carry me the
rest of the way to the finish line!
was occasionally really quite hot but the heat was mitigated frequently by a
welcome breeze. Although promoted as a flat race, no-one remembered to tell
that to the Humber Bridge – we hit the Bridge first from the Hessle side,
at about mile 13, and it appeared that it sloped upwards for ever.
Notwithstanding that, it can’t be denied that there are outstanding views from
the Bridge, nor that the rest of the race was interesting. From the
Llamas in East Park and the KC Stadium in West Park there was much to grab
the runners’ attention. The highlight had to be, however, the fly past by the
red arrows as we were making our gruelling progress up (yes another
hill!) Boothferry Road.
I have to admit I was somewhat
jealous of the relay runners at times when I saw them handing over to team
mates; what I wouldn’t have given for a fresh set of legs!
were excellent; they clapped and encouraged us all the way and this was
particularly appreciated towards the end of the race when every step was
painful. They also had a variety of ‘goodies’ to hand out, not just
water, but jelly babies, other sweets, orange slices and bananas.
the pain and suffering endured towards the end of the marathon, the sense of
achievement (and relief!) when the finish line is at last crossed is
