Bobby Button It was fun! Ill 2 weeks before the race which didn't help the training. Hopefully can improve on this soon! Unaffiliated 1:54:29 1:54:29 2:00:00 1:54:29 56.97

CanaryYellow My spiritual home. It'd be rude not to. 

*Post race* Met heaps of fecthies. Got wet. The C of CanaryYellow almost fell off. Set off far too fast and struggled on the second lap. Unaffiliated 1:40:48 2:06:16 2:08:00 2:08:50 45.37
DarrenJones Started badly needing to go to loo within seconds! Time includes 2 toilet breaks but overall quite pleased with my time. Upped the pace on second lap as wanted to come in under 2hrs but unfortunately that hill at the end killed me! Unaffiliated 2:00:36 2:00:36 2:30:12 2:00:36 49.21
domichiwa Chip time.  327th.  Beats my previous PB of 1 39 30 set at the Bristol Half way back in 1997
 (that was a wet day as I recall)!  Only the second time under 1 40.  Not old and past it yet!  Well pleased.

GazzaC Awful conditions, wet, windy and impossible to avoid puddles. One big hill at 6.5 miles (which you meet again at 13 miles) which was a killer for me! 

I got stuck in the car park too! Unaffiliated 1:44:29 1:51:40 1:48:00 1:51:40 52.55
Glitzie The weather was awful today cold, wet and windy.  First half of the race was okay and I was averaging 8.30 miles so was on target for a PB but the second half the wind and rain got me at 9 miles across the fields and I started going backwards.  I hated it. Just glad to have scraped in under 2 hours. Norfolk Gazelles Running Club 1:53:56 1:58:31 1:59:54 55.92

hopisen Although the weather was appalling, was really pleased to get a PB. First ten miles were really good, on track for 2 h 10.. the last three were a real struggle though, and I had to really slow for the last 5 k.  Still now I know what I need to do to get another PB. 

Am really pleased, and charged up for doing another one in spring- I f I get the last three miles sorted I can see knocking off a nother couple of minutes Unaffiliated 1:48:42 2:16:20 2:16:20 42.94

joelene This was my first half marathon and it nearly put me of for life.  The weather was horrendous and it was like running against a brick wall with the wind, but i will be there next year, so lets hope the weather is alot better. Unaffiliated 1:50:43 1:50:43 1:55:00 1:50:43 58.95
Joopsy I will PB at this distance, by how much depends on how my training goes. As long as I get a solid month in beforehand I will PB by at least 6 mins.

Update****Forget 6 mins, it was nearly 23!! Enjoy the points*** VEGAN RUNNERS UK 1:42:34 1:53:47 2:00:00 1:53:47 51.92
