In Search of Vikings
Howard MacLennan has been quite the jetsetter this year. He’s been on a quest to run half marathons in the capital cities of every Nordic country. Not satisfied with that, he’s also completed the Paavo Nurmi half in Turku, Finland, and the largest road race in the world (based on number of registrations not finishers), the Gothenburg half in Sweden.
Here are his times:
1:40:44 Copenhagen Half Marathon 29 March 14
1:43:12 Helsinki Half Marathon 10 May 14
1:48:55 Gothenburg Half Marathon 17 May 14
1:41:57 Paavo Nurmi Half Marathon 28 Jun 14
1:40:37 Reykjavik Half Marathon 23 Aug 14
1:46:33 Stockholm Half Marathon 13 Sep 14
1:40:51 Oslo Half Marathon 20 Sep 14
So, what’s next for Howard? A full marathon in every Nordic capital? Or a half in every European capital perhaps?
