Lexo Was a bit knackered after the Dubar 10K on Saturday and  Died in the Sun on the first half and was actually close to jacking it in by Musselburgh but my life saving girlfriend was on hand to give me a hat and after that belted through the second half to beat my PB by a few seconds. well done  to Andydgg for his PB and hats off to  RichyC who was  absolutly flying the other way as I came up to the turn and also a special mention  to my pal Jaque Ramsay who slashed an incredible 13 minutes of her PB to take 5th place in the womans categroy  in 1:25 Well done lass!.

mad4it New course for me not done before, liked the race, road marshalls, mile posts, drinks stations and volenteers,weather, fancy dress costumes brought a smile to my face, i just knew the sun would be out. Hated the sore hip playing gip, the end where the massive que's congregated and they could have been a lot better organised, worst exeperience yet at the finish out of 13 half marathons run. They could have sent out the numbers and chips beforehand, given us a plastic bag to put our goodies in, i kept dropping mine with sheer exhaustion. Unaffiliated 2:04:45 2:06:29 2:15:00 2:11:05 55.25

MartyK Chip time.  Cracking weather, and not much wind until the turn at mile 10 (even that wasn't too bad).  Legs felt great until mile 7, but then got heavier and heavier.  Was abit worried that I wouldn't make the Alloa time but managed to dig in at the end to get 1min under.  Great to see loads of fetchies as ever. Unaffiliated 1:43:16 1:43:16 1:43:58 1:43:16 56.54

pdmacmill run time in line with my the training that i did for this event, knee injury a few days earlier put me doing this race in doubt but i managed tp run it and can't really blame my worst 1/2 marathon time on my knee.

SpicedApple My first race over 10k, and I really enjoyed it. The run itself, that is - the organisation off the course was very poor, especially with regard to the timing chips (took them 4 days to get me a result at all). jogscotland, Musselburgh & District Athletic Club 1:58:25 1:58:25 2:30:00 1:58:25 55.08

Yano Ran this as a warm up race for the Lochaber Marathon and the main purpose was to try and run 8min mile pace all the way. We did that and it was very comfortable and enjoyable. We should do it this way more often! Unaffiliated 1:29:45 1:39:39 1:44:00 1:43:30 56.86
