Cardiff Half Marathon

Sun October 18 2009 Listed by agc
116 Entrants Club PB SB Pred Time WAVA
Adders Started fast.... very fast. My target pace was 6:40-6:45, but first 3 miles were 6:18, 6:15 and 6:18! Fearing the worst, i kept my target race pace after that without slowing down considerably, so i kept at least a minute ahead of schedule throughout. An excellent race overall.

Shabby Lovely course - just some parts are a bit narrow for the number of competitors.  Common gripe seemed to be the lack of notice for the water stops.  Well organised in my opinion and would cetainly do it again. Unaffiliated 2:00:01 2:00:01 2:00:00 2:00:01 50.02

WildeRover Went off a bit too quick and was suprised to see the 1:50 pacer not far ahead at half way...............suffered from about 8 onwards.

Still, practically bang on what I was hoping for this year.

Well done to the organisers, they managed to iron out nearly all of the issues.  The only problems this year were no pre-warning for water stations (which for 11,000 becomes a bit of an issue) and the baggage retrieval after the finish was a mess.
