Is Aiming to go sub-50 again. 

S-l-o-w... Ran it two years ago, with a sprained ankle and flu, in 51 something. So this was, um, gutting. But dad's garmin measured it at 6.57... which fetch tells me would make my 10k time 49:58. But, um. I guess that doesn't count. Woe. Warwick Uni Triathlon & Road Cycling Club 46:50 53:02 53:02 57.06

kaperner I-pod recorded the distance as 11.30 km not 10 km. Heard other people saying that the actual distance could have been a bit longer than 10 km Wootton Road Runners 45:18 52:04 52:04 57.07

smash Disaster - Sorry to all of you who bet on me for Saturday.  The race was 600m too long, my legs hurt and I stopped to assist an injured runner, so I came no-where near beating my PB.  Pegasus RC 53:05 58:01 53:00 1:01:00 48.76

Tatws My splits were good up until the 3km and the 7th km. This threw me off the time and affected my mind in trying to get my PB. 
4:12, 4:31, 6:00, 4:58, 4:46, 4:48, 6:23, 4:45, 4:46, 4:34

This run was longer than advertised and I have adjusted my time accordingly to 47 mins FERC 47:07 47:07 50:00 47:07 56.36
The running poet A slow time but then my Garmin did read 6.57 at the end instead of the expected 6.21.  Also, I haven't run at all for the last three weeks or so as my left calf has been injured so I decided just to jog around and see if I could cover the distance comfortably without my calf 'popping' again.  Got to 25 minutes and the calf tightened up but I kept going at a steady pace and even managed a last push along the final long straight.  In 2006, the start/finish for this race was much further up the long straight towards Cardiff so maybe they put the start/finish in the wrong place this year.  FERC 48:16 53:31 54:00 56:10 52.90
The_Saint The Garmin http://tinyurl.com/yu4t29 said 6.52 miles or 10.5 KM, that has to be classed as very disappointing, two other Garmin users recorded 6.54 miles. I wonder whether if there is general agreement we could ask for this race to change to a Non-PB race or have the distance amended. Have run it 3 years in a row, doubt that I will run it next time.
