Bul Soooo hot and hilly!!
V strong in first 5 miles (29'00) but died in the second half. Felt strong though and on better day could have done much better. Clapham Chasers 56:10 56:51 1:00:45 72.56

Buzzards Sis I was  hoping for sub 1.30 but thought it may be an ask on a hilly course on a hot day. My PB stood at 1.37. I had a great race. I planned to run 9 mm up to mile 7 (slower up the hills and making up for it on the down hills). I ran between 8.5 and 9.5 most of the time and managed to pick up speed towards the end (although the hills were hard work!) I passed lots of people, which was great, and caught up and over took a few club mates, one of whom paced me over the last 2.5 miles to make sure I came in well within my target, smashing another PB! A lovely run, a few hills but not too bad and really pretty.  Updated with official time, rather than Garmin time. Still a great PB and ess than a minute in it but might just make it easier to beat next time! Striders of Croydon AC 1:28:54 1:28:54 1:35:00 1:28:54 56.27

Cookie It was too hot for me today and the undulations exposed my current level of fitness - two years ago I ran 1:05:10. It was good training though for the long summer races I've got planned. Ranelagh Harriers 1:07:45 1:08:06 1:14:14 61.14

Duncs Going for a PB on this one. Only raced at 10 miles once before and it's 2 weeks after a marathon. **Update** sorry to those of you who bet. Legs felt tired from the start and the heat got to me too. First 3 miles were OK and on target but just couldn't keep it going. 100 Marathon Club, Bracknell Forest Runners 1:10:54 1:10:54 1:15:00 1:18:33 57.08
funkin Heard that this is a little undulating.  Therefore with no knowledge of the course I'm aiming for sub 70. *UPDATE* very happy with the result.  It was warm out there, and a bit hilly.  Came 83rd overall out of 600. Ranelagh Harriers, The Stragglers RC 1:03:09 1:03:09 1:09:59 1:08:29 64.49
Fuzzy Pre-race: Aparantly an improved route, no more bottle neck start!!  Should take a few minutes of my previous time.  Over the past few years I've always seem to have a niggle of some description for this race.  Hopefully, touch wood, I'll be able to give it 100% this year.  Want to beat 1:30 on this race, even better if I could get a new PB.
*Post-race* - So much for my pre-race optimisium.  Not fully match fit, but expecting about 1:30.  1st few miles fine, then slowly lost pace.  Defeated by the heat, could it have been hotter!?!  My slowest 10miler ever... Sandhurst Joggers 1:21:16 1:27:56 1:29:00 1:41:08 43.59
John66 I'm in
I'm looking forward to it
No idea of time though
Save any bets for a summer 10k

Met loads of Fetchies - some old some new.  Ran with Mrs Funkin for about 6 miles - amazing level pace.  Very hot so aimed to just get round - job done! Barnes Runners 1:41:26 1:44:13 1:50:00 1:58:20 38.63

Kirsty Am running this not racing - don't waste your bets! Although...... my 10 mile pb is a couple of years old........
Lots of fun in the sun - well I enjoyed the first 6 miles and then regretted the throwaway comment I had made to a friend at the start - 'I would much rather run 10 miles than 10k any time'. What was I thinking??
Oh well - a beautiful course with lovely scenery to admire, and I did get a teeny pb, on my watch if not on the official time.
Also met 2 fetchies at the start, one of whom gave me a jelly baby. Lovely. Thank you! Ranelagh Harriers 1:19:49 1:19:49 1:25:14 58.16
