Barney2483 Blagged a free place and am hoping to run under 2hrs.  Result!  For some reason I ran out of steam at about the 6 mile point but still managed to beat my predicted time with a little encouragement. Unaffiliated 1:55:00 1:55:00 2:00:00 1:55:00 50.82

More of a Tortoise Started off with PPB who was struggling with injury to ankle.   She pulled out at 4 miles and I went it alone but found it a real struggle and couldn't get into a rhythmn at all. Got pretty cold towards the end as well.
Fantastic marshals though and great sweatshirt at the end. Witney Road Runners 2:51:12 3:08:50 2:50:00 3:12:00 34.00
Northern Exile My first BM and I didn't know what to expect.  Splits were as follow:

7.15/7.10/7.27/7.25/7.01/7.36/7.39/7.21/7.44/7.40/7.49/7.42 + 8.35 for the last 1.1

Rhino Fantastic race and a post-injury PB! Achilles were enormously painful from 6.5 ish - 11 miles, had to stop at 9 to try to sort them but it didn't work. The hill at 11 and change in stride worked wonders and since I'd had to hold back so much cos of the pain, I had loads left to give for the last 2 miles and flew as fast as I could! Fantasticly organised and marshalled, thanks to everyone! Trail Running Association 1:44:00 1:52:12 2:00:00 1:57:32 55.47

XB Hoping for a nice steady run. Am determined to stick to 6mins/km for first 5k then see how it goes.
The best laid plans. I went off too fast then settled into a steady rhythm and finished strongly. Top of the world.

THIS IS A BRILLIANT RACE. FERC 1:46:39 1:50:10 1:59:00 1:50:10 56.21
