Jo Corbett (1:11:09) knocked off a field of nearly 1,600 runners to win the 30th annual Gosport Half Marathon in southern England. He cut close to a minute from his ninth-place finish a year ago. James Connor finished a close second at 1:11:45. Richard Waldron (1:12:04) managed to hold off David Meacock (1:12:13) for third. For the women, it was last year’s runner-up Sarah Hill (1:20:29) taking the top spot, despite coming in more than 30 seconds slower than in 2014. Sarah Kingston secured second with a time of 1:22:33. She finished sixth with a similar time a year ago. In a tight race for third, Jessica Bennett (1:25:05) beat out Lesley Locks (1:25:20). Lock finished ninth in 2014.
