Cambridge Half Marathon 2015

last modified Mar 13, 2015 12:33 PM

On Sunday, 8 March 2015, the Saucony Cambridge Half Marathon took place in support of Cancer Research UK.

The course followed a 2 loops route beginning on Victoria Avenue, passing some of Cambridge's most famous and beautiful locations including The Backs and King's College, before finishing on Midsummer Common.

Three members of this department took part, Belen Gonzalez, Merlin Etzold and Tom Matthams.

Belen Gonzalez is a postdoctoral researcher with Prof John Dennis. She is a triathlete and runs this kind of race as a training. She says, "Last year I saw the race as a spectator (I started to run just one year ago, I have been all my life a swimmer) and I decided that this year I would do it. It was not bad, I didn't do my best time (I did a better time three weeks ago in Spain) but my aim was to run hard the first loop to see my time at 10km, and this one was really good. From this point I just tried to keep running until the end."

Merlin Etzold is a PhD student working with Dr Alex Routh on Colloidal Dispersions. He has just submitted his thesis.

Dr Tom Matthams is the Department Administrator (Academic Matters).
