Kilkenny Medival Half Marathon

Hi Guys, 
I ran the Medieval Half Marathon in Kilkenny yesterday. It was a tough, hilly course, mostly through narrow country roads, some without stewards. I finished 9th out of 246 runners. No official PB today as such though the distance came up as 13.39 miles on my watch, so either a discrepancy in measuring the course (which wouldn't surprise me), or I need to get a new watch! 
Best Regards,
