  • Sloggerian says: Ran the old route last year as my first half marathon after a break of 19 years and ended up with 112:00. Hoping for more like 95:00 this year,especially if it is flatter this time round. Mind you - didn't exactly seem like climbing everest last time out - don't see what the fuss was all about!
  • FellSurfer says: 89:59 or less is the target
  • janbipps says: Target 120
  • LouLou says: Target under 1.27
  • Yeti says: Somewhere in the region of 2:10 (race times in just minutes confuse me, sorry!)
  • ChickenLegs says: Hopefully aiming for under 90 mins if everything goes well
  • tiamo69 says: competing this year (2010) should've competed last year but was signed off work for 3 months.
    is there a group for 2010 & has everyone spotted the glaring error on the route that's been set out in the newsletter...?
    up Middleway, turn RIGHT into Ryland Road...
    maybe not!
  • JimM says: After a 2:03 last year I really hope to break 2hrs
