TWO new names were added to the winner’s list of the Stafford half marathon in 2012.
Dalkins, who also dedicated his success on the day to Clare Skelton, covered the distance in 70.58 and said:”It was one race I’ve wanted to do and I must say it was fantastic organisation.
“It wasn’t an easy course but it’s enjoyable.”
Dalkins won from Chris Hollinshead (Stafford Harriers) 1:14.31 and third place Oliver Harradence (Royal Sutton Coldfield) in 1:14.56.
s The 2013 race is the 28th running of the event. There was no Stafford half marathon in 1989 and the scheduled 2001 event was called off due to the foot and mouth disease outbreak.
