BarefootJax First ever 5k race. Gone from C25k and absolutely loved the run! Unaffiliated 35:40 39:38 40:00 39:38 37.42
Beaconette First time I've done this one.  Started waaaaaaaaay too far back and was stuck behind thousands of walking people for the first 2k.  But when I did have room to run, I'm really pleased with how I did.  AND the tshirt fits! :-D Unaffiliated 36:21 36:21 36:21 40.54
becca7 This race had a section for sub-25 runners and then one for 25-30 minute runners.  I started at the front of this second group as, although I was hoping for sub-25, I tend to start a little slowly and I did not want to get in anyone's way.  As it turned out I encountered a little congestion over the first 200 metres but nothing too great.  The course is very gently undulating and so a pb is achievable if getting a clear path.  I had not run a 5km race for a few years so a pb was always likely and was heading for a time close to 5 minutes when I got a stitch with 600 metres to go.  Walked for a few seconds and then carried on painfully as the finish was so close. 100 Marathon Club, VEGAN RUNNERS UK, Wigston Phoenix, LDWA 22:01 25:44 27:00 25:44 58.00

Kristi G My first ever organised run, loved the atmosphere! Quite emotional as i was running for my son who is Autistic and couldn't wait to get started.
I was pleased with my time, as it was the first time i had ran and not stopped to walk, yay me!
I have attended organised runs with my hubby, as he's a runner and thought it was set out well.
I think the only thing that didn't help me, was being caught behind loads of people walking. 
Don't get me wrong, if thats how they choose to do the course, it's their choice, but they could of been more considerate to the women who wanted to run, especially when i know i can do 5k in 40 mins!

Overall, i'm happy! Unaffiliated 45:07 45:07 40:00 45:07 32.66

SUPERWOMAN63 I am not going to break any records doing this race. I just really ENJOY the whole event and this is one of my FAVOURITE races.
See you there xX
What can l say it was a very BIG CROWD parts of the run were difficult to  get through walking let alone jogging, however l had a very ENJOYABLE, slower run as did my 3 friends and l also got captured on tv. 
See you next year xX Unaffiliated 31:03 33:29 35:31 41:46 37.53
