Perfect conditions for 25th Hoy Half Marathon

With more than 150 runners competing, that the 2011 Hoy Half Marathon was the biggest to date and the organisers said that, despite a few logistical problems, the event ran smoothly on the day.

To celebrate 25 years of the race, each finisher was presented with a commemorative medal, and a number of other presentations also took place.
