Vitality Reading Half Marathon provides Paul Pollock and Lily Partridge with early leads in 2015 Grand Prix

The sun was shining on 15,357 runners at the 2015 Vitality Reading Half Marathon yesterday and the new look race course did not disappoint. Pledged by the organisers to be flatter and faster than ever before, impressive finish times were logged across the 190-strong elite field. Amos Kiplagat was crowned winner of the men's race in 63 minutes and 9 seconds with Lily Partridge (handicap -1.2) finishing in top spot of the women's race in 70 minutes and 31 seconds. Lily has claimed 250 Grand Prix points for the win and another 100 bonus points for running sub 71 minutes. Paul Pollock (handicap -5.3) finished 2nd in the men's race and, as the first British finisher, collected 250 for the win and a bonus 100 for his time of 64:05, which was under the threshold of 65 minutes.
