Morpeth’s Andrew Hebden was runner up in the Heart of Eden Half Marathon
in Cumbria on Sunday 21st October 2018, securing his second podium finish in a fortnight.
Hebden finished 25 seconds behind winner Matt Sims in a time of 1hr 22m 54secs.
The pair had batted it out with West Cheshire athlete Tom Booth for the top three places
throughout most of the undulating road race which started and finished
in Appleby-in-Westmorland in the North Pennines.
Booth, who had led for the majority of the race, eventually finished third.
Two weeks earlier Hebden claimed third place in the Kielder Marathon.
