Great May 24th practice run this morning! @natty_d_bermuda caught us as we came thru the halfway point. Gotta admit I'm looking forward to this race even though it will be brutally hot and the ladt half is seriously hilly. It'll be the last race of the season which means I get to start planning the next year of racing! – – – – – #proveittoyourself #beatyesterday #worlderunners #runnersworld #runnersofinstagram #runitfast #runningterritory #monitorthebeat #wearetherunners #werunsocial #runchat #runforfun #justrun #marathontraining #halfmarathontraining #marathoner #runallthemiles #runrunrun #runningcoach #bermuda #may24th #bermudamarathonderby #appleby #bermudaday
Faster than easy 6-miler after dropping the kiddo off at school this morning. Why yes, it WAS warm, why do you ask? 😝 – – You know you live on a small island (with a big race coming up) when no fewer than five strangers give you shoutouts for training for May 24. Always a brutal horrible half marathon, but the island-wide support along the way is awesome! – – #runner #halfmarathon #training #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #womensrunning #womensrunningcommunity #fitmom #runallthemiles #bermuda #bermudaday

A Bermuda Heritage Short: The 13-mile Bermuda Half-Marathon Derby road race has been drawing competitors and large crowds since 1909. Long synonymous with the May 24 Bermuda Day holiday, the event began as a friendly cross-country race between Bermudians and British soldiers stationed here. The first race was hosted by the Somerset Athletic Club and that year a British soldier crossed the finish line first, much to the disappointment of the Bermudian entrants who requested a re-match the following year. With the local runners eager to prove they could beat the British, the Half-Marathon Derby came into being. Race legends include "Sir" Stanley Burgess, Arthur “Goo Gip” Lambert, Ed Sherlock (pictured), Kavin Smith and Chris Estwanik, the only five runners to have won at least six Half-Marathon Derby titles each. Happy Bermuda Day 🇧🇲
