Race: Sturminster Newton Half Marathon

Race: Stur Half / Sturminster Newton Half Marathon

Distances: 5k or Half Marathon

Course: Roads / Paths, undulating with a few inclines

Weather: Hot and sunny, with very little shade

Nutrition stations: 7 water stations, some with SIS gels, oranges, sweets

I enjoyed the race, it was well organised and the nutrition stations were excellent. Some people camped at the finish area, there were food vans a portable toilets. The start line is 0.7 miles from the finish area, where there is plenty of parking available. Every participant was given a small microfibre towel as a momento, bananas, drinks and flapjack bars.


The Kernel, BiΓ¨re de Saison

Name: Bière de Saison

Brewery: The Kernel Brewery, London, England

Type: Damson Saison

ABV: 5.5%

First tried: 1/2 pint @ Little Faith, Deptford

A very light flavoured saison with a gentle damson flavour. Refermented with 350g of British damsons per litre for four months! I wanted to try this Sour ever since seeing that Kernel brewed a sour beer in this Telegraph article.
