Bazoaxe Cold day ,solid first mile, tough second mile up hill...cruised downhill for 3rd mile and a decent time considering we ran up  a steep hill

M1 6.43 
M2 7.20
M3 5.48
then 0.41

Organisation a shambles - I thought the orange group were the sub 20 finishers, got at the very front of the white group, and before we reached half a K was catching people walking, moving very slowly and generally making it hard to run at my own pace up the hill as I had to weave in and out, onto the grass or check my stride.  Staggerred starts need to be in paced groups, nit randow batches - Poor show. Unaffiliated 18:25 20:33 20:00 20:33 66.71

Fergus Wasn't expecting this to be hilly. Even so it was a poor time - can't really blame having to squeeze past hundreds of folk, just not fit enough. Unaffiliated 22:25 22:25 21:00 22:25 59.50
freeby Great day for a race, only spoiled by shambolic organisation as noted by others. I'm not huge but hate the fact that they don't supply XL t shirts! Pleased with my time though given the hill and lack of recent training (and sleep!) after baby number two! jogscotland 27:45 27:45 35:00 31:04 44.13

jamborigg Not very impressed with this race ,why on earth have the slow runners start first ,by the time i got to the hillthey were mostly shuffling up it .Which only made it harder to pass them .Bit of a strange starting system Lothian RC 17:35 18:46 22:00 19:12 71.40

Lyns Woke up this morning to find everything white and the temperature still only 0deg. But it was sunny and the sky was pure blue, a really crisp lovely day and good for running except for worries about it being icy and slippy underfoot.
total time (garmin) 30m22s which might be a pb (depending on official time) but i'm not too dissapointed as my training was seriously disrupted by being ill for over two weeks in early december and it being too icy/snowy to run the first week of january.

senga the trolly dolly Great day for a run, but organisation at the start left a little to be desired. Too many people in the wrong grouping,crushed into to tight a starting area meant that the first Km was reduced to a dawdle.  
There was little marshalling at the start with late arrivals pushing thro the side barriers making it all quite hazardous. 
Signage around the event was limited - couldn't see anything to indicate the Registration / Number collection point. 
site maps are fine, but when you are getting ready for a race you want simple clear directions. 
And then at the finish the clock wasn't operating.
Given that we'd shelled out £20.00 for this 5km run a little more attention to detail would not have gone amiss.
A wee bit disappointed with my time as I felt I'd really pushed hard up the hill and seemed to be running at a fair lick down the home run. Fife AC 23:43 23:43 25:00 25:10 64.26

Tigerlily Killer!  I didn't realise we ran UP Arthur's Seat.  Was late getting through to Edinburgh and was in a portaloo when the elite runners went off.  Freezing cold day, but gorgeous winter sunshine.  I ran/walked this and didn't care what time I did, I just wanted to finish.  Vowed never again, but probably will!
