Bob! Plan was to run the first half in 9.30 miling, and then to run some Marathon pace miles (8.30) toward the end.  

Started off slowly, and just ran how I felt (which was faster than 9.30 milin). Bumped into Derek at about 4 miles, and stayed with him until about 12 when I decided to put in my Marathon pace miles. Did the last 8 miles at an average 8.34, considering that the bloody big hill was in there, and the whole course was up & down, I'm pretty pleased with that!

CanaryYellow Run the nearly 10 for the last 2 years with the race in 2007 being my first race ever (couldnt just be normal and do a 5k or a 10 k could i? Oh no)  I came 5th from last but i was hooked.

Turning right rather than left is going to kill me. Mind you so is the 20 miles so pick your poison i guess. Unaffiliated 3:04:39 3:04:39 3:19:00 3:15:45 46.81

jayneb really enjoyable race through Bury villages, well organised.

Hill training required prior to race.  Mile 9 hill was a killer!!!

Def a good last race priot to Marathon.  I have been told London Marathon is easier than the Bury 20. Unaffiliated 2:52:00 2:52:00 3:09:00 2:52:00 53.58

Metal Martin A tough course.  Marathon prep - but a good 20 mile PB.   Nasty scratches on leg because of a bramble attack during a loo stop.   But just over 10 min miles, even with tough hills - I am happy. Thorney Running Club, Thorney RC 3:24:31 3:24:31 3:30:00 3:24:31 47.39
