Collingwood & Will Run Solid Half Marathons

Gavin Will
Gavin Will ran the Nassau Bahamas Half Marathon this past weekend in 1:41:48 to win his age group. Better half Amanda Will finished 4th in her age group in 2:06:53.

Jeff Collingwood
Meanwhile in another part of the world Jeff Collingwood completed the Ooredoo Half Marathon in Qatar in 1:24:50 to finish 24th overall in a fast field of some 400 runners.

There were no age group awards but to put it in perspective his time would have landed him 7th place at last year's Huffin' Puffin!
