Kew Ran this one with Mum and she managed 19 minutes quicker than last year!! This would be such a hard run to race, but running it with Mum was really enjoyable. I even braved sitting in a cold bath afterwards as I knew my legs were going to hurt. Reading Joggers 2:48:08 3:27:46 3:27:46 48.94
Padams 2:15:51 last year, but they changed the route so likely to get lost!
Result - didn't get lost at all! Ran most of it with Coronium and a clubmate, very enjoyable. St. Albans Striders 1:58:01 2:17:56 2:20:00 2:17:56 66.25

Ultra Sparkly Bridget (USB) That was a tough start straight to the top of the Downs, once I saw the bottleneck at the gate I walked.  By the time I got to RichK and his camera there were very few people behind me.  No-one passed me the rest of the way but I did manage to pass 3 other runners :-)

A little bit of walking up that steep bit on the road but ran the rest.  Legs benefitted from a massage in the bar afterwoards ;-) Buckingham and Stowe Running Club 3:15:40 3:17:03 4:02:39 45.14
Wheabs This sounds an interesting race and perfect preperation for Abingdon.
UPDATE: Wonderful day for running across the Downs. My prediction was very accurate but I would have done better had I not had cramp from about mile 15! Wilmslow RC 3:27:48 3:27:48 3:30:00 3:27:48 45.53
