Ands Warm, headwind, and disliked the contraflow loop, seemed to loose pace along there.  Was hoping fo 45-46mins, but about a minute slower than planned. Great atomosphere as usual. Blaydon Harriers & AC 42:47 0 46:42 64.34
batmouse Hope I get a place.  Always fancied running it but not had the nerve.  I dunno why I thought I'd do it in 50 mins what was I thinking????  I was obviously under the influence of alcohol when I thought 50 mins. Good run.  Thanks Morgs.  Unaffiliated 48:00 0 50:00 1:01:07 48.25
Beejay Running but not racing.......under 50 mins should be about right. 

Race went ok, course was flattish but was ran into the wind :( Southwell RC 0 0 46:30 45:24 57.56
Big Hag A Canny run and I was faster than last year. Aycliffe Running Club 41:17 0 46:00 43:43 59.77
bigal did no training for this as way too busy at the minute,so ran it as a funrun with a good friend.Made a nice change to run for enjoyment without chasing a time. Enjoyed the changes to the course as added a bit variety to usual course. Blackhill Bounders 40:43 0 42:00 47:38 54.22

Cat the Dog Lover Start line to finish time.  Official time more like 54 mins.  Not a good run for me in any respect.  Left me feeling very miserable. Billingham Marsh House Harriers & AC 0 0 53:36 54.29

Grey Badger First time i've done this one. Leg sore from saturdays fell race so just have to see how it goes.    UPDATE----- leg held up fine, super event ,4000 runners. I had to start way back as i'm not in a running club so it took 40sec to get to the start line then walked for quite a bit before getting running. Once i got started i ran well with no pain from leg, passed lots of people. Time i have put down is my time from the start line to the finish line not the gun time which was 37m 30sec. Very well organised event with a great tee shirt and goodie bag. PS route came back as 6.06 on my Garmin anyone else find this? Northumberland Fell Runners 0 0 36:30 36:51 76.13

Lisrun Great atmosphere at this one. An alteration to the course this year which changes the length from 5.7m to 5.9m *Update* Crowded start, bit of a headwind and warm. Slightly disappointed with my time, but its probably good that I didn't push too hard as I have a long race on Saturday 100 Marathon Club, Elvet Striders, North East Marathon Club 49:22 0 45:00 47:50 63.37

Miss Sweden Right. Going to try and get in in 50 mins in this. Not sure if I can do it, but will give it a go.
Did it in 51 mins but seeing as the b*****ds made it longer and added in an extra hill, I'm pretty pleased with this. North Shields Polytechnic AC 50:45 0 50:00 51:00 56.62

RobK Really enjoyed this race. Great atmosphere at the start.. yep a little crowded but it was ace.. excellent route. Yep my Garmin recorded a distance of 6.07 so I was very happy with MY time of 44:24. Well done to organisers. That bottle of Dog in the goodie bag really hit the spot at the finish.

RununMan Went off too fast  and blew up badly last year - hope to run better this time!!! UPDATE: Great atmosphere in the bigg market pre race. It's seems everyone turns out for this one. I ran okay upto 4m then legs just locked up, i struggled but just tried to keep it going to the end. I've decided im either rubbish at this race or it's just too close to Edin Marathon!!

Scooba Steve Found this hard going, only ran once in last 9 weeks so that was to be expected, nothing better than a crappy ime to kickstart some proper training! FERC 0 0 55:00 57:45 43.93

suziedee Although the race organisers said this was 5.7 miles my Garmin made it just over 6 miles one of us has to be wrong and I don't think it is Garmin as a number of others I've spoken to also said that they got 6miles on their Garmin Morpeth Harriers & AC 0 0 1:05:00 1:09:00 49.52

Vicki: Graceless Whippet Pretty hot out there, but had a canny run.  Even somehow managed to beat last years time (43:15)  on what was a longer course - supposedly 5.9 but several folks had 6+ miles on their garmins.  Will have to see what my official time was as I forgot to press start on mine, so just checked on the clock above the finish as I went under it.  Great to meet up with various club mates & forumites Jarrow & Hebburn AC 43:04 0 43:00 43:07 67.49
