Ben Fish was out in another Half-Marathon at the weekend, just a week after finishing third in the Chester Half-Marathon. This time, Ben was back to winning ways, leading home the 330 strong field on a very tough Buxton course which includes climbing to 1508ft/460m in just over 72 minutes. Winning times over the last two years have been 76 minutes, so a great performance from Ben on this course.
