Ally2 First mile in 5:18 but felt fine with undulations until turn at mile 4 and the wind slowed me down and I got a stitch. In group of 4 at that point then dropped 1 and got dropped by other 2 but in mile 5 caught 2 up the final hill but was left in final 400m. First 3 16:45 2nd half: 17:53
Good race know I can run quicker without the wind and came 14th so starting to mix at top end and feel top 10 can be achieved this season. Notts AC, Hermitage Harriers RC 29:51 34:40 35:00 34:40 74.42
Beccals considering my recent lack of running it is ok, but would like to improve.  Still had energy and puff left so perhaps I took it too tentatively.  Hope to do better.  Unaffiliated 49:26 50:57 50:57 58.08
Boycie Weather conditions were unfortunately not in favour of running quick times. Most guys were about 30-40 secs off of previous year's times as a result. Was going well at 4m marker (23:15) but unfortunately the combination of the hill and the gale force wind, meant by last two miles were pretty slow :-( - that said I am well happy with a 34th place, my best finish in the LRRL to date...

Definite PB in the Weston Prom 5m on Thursday - 4th race in a row that I have sub 29:45 at a 5m split! Unaffiliated 34:19 35:53 35:20 35:53 71.92
Broccers Pleased with this as coming back from injury. Took all the hills in my stride and even managed to keep going against the wind from 4 miles onwards.

Was 101 woman so aiming to improve on this throughout the league, Barrow Runners 49:15 52:07 52:00 52:07 56.20
clifford not been running too good just lately, will be an effort to get below 49: Update: Disappointed not getting under 49, though the cold i have affected my breathing and the last 2 miles was against the wind and up the hill. Hermitage Harriers RC 48:00 49:07 49:00 49:07 52.97

Deanomite Ran a contolled race. Used Garmin for 1st time which helped.
Really pleased with PB as the last part of the race was running into a very strong wind and uphill.
Felt I could have gone a bit quicker but wanted to save my energy for the hill. Hermitage Harriers RC 41:45 47:52 48:00 47:52 55.17
Firestarter Bugger...!!!! Really wanted to murder that 40min race time....still can't get past it !!! Hill in the final mile took too much out of me, managed a bit of a sprint finish and got the Vests on the way in but too little too late unfortunately. Oh Well just have to do better at Markfield...

Rich963 Tough conditions in places - the wind in your face up the hills from 4.5m to the end particularly.  2.15 slower than last year, so need to have a good go at training hard over the next few weeks months. Stilton Striders RC 38:15 40:30 40:30 63.70

ThorntonRunner Very disappointed - was hoping for 39m, achieved 40:27. Struggled from mile 3. Wind didn't help, but that doesn't explain the full effect. Unaffiliated 39:34 40:27 40:27 69.95
wildebeast hope to do it if the cold lets me very disappointed with my run tight chest and unresponsive legs but hey ho Hinckley Running Club 37:00 40:50 40:00 40:50 65.54
