april_runner It would be nice to see a drop in my 10K time after the great improvements I have seen in my half time - I've been ill with a cold this past week but am recovering quickly and at least I have fresh legs. *update* Not quite as quick as I believe I am capable, but still a very good run. Feel over last week's cold but still coughed and spluttered a little - don't think this really affected my running though. Third lady and a sub-39 10K PB, woohoo!

Chris 10k Very cold day in the Fens with fog and frost.  Still with no wind.  Very flat except 8 to 9km. Went to See Sue and Tony afterwards Bedford Harriers AC 45:05 45:48 46:00 45:48 66.55

DrBob not going to be fast this year, but I'll have a go and try to beat last year's time at least

Ran as expected, really hard work at times and there was a troubling voice in my head saying Cambridge & Coleridge AC 31:04 35:03 37:00 36:57 79.07
Drell Fantastic! and many many thanks to Jobe and Old Man for their wonderful pacing, and Jobe for her excellent advice Unaffiliated 54:16 57:59 1:00:00 57:59 56.84
EarlyRiser Tail-end of cold and not wanting to be here. Started ok, but couldn't push pace mid-way. Struggled over the last 3k. Even so, new PB by 48 seconds, don't know where that came from. Unaffiliated 43:07 43:07 45:00 43:07 68.33

Girlie Think I just might consider racing this and attempting to go out of 2008 with another pb?
I'm mainly goign for the vibe and to have a few laffs going round, so a PB would be a lovely bonus:-)

***UPDATE*** A fab race and excellent result:-) a 31 sec PB, really enjoyed this race again and another PB bonus:-) 
And my highest ever WAVA score:-) Lonely Goat RC 57:56 58:23 58:30 58:23 53.23

green-40 First race back from breaking ankle in July, just want to get around and get the bug back for 2009 Unaffiliated 52:26 56:05 59:00
Grumpy Galloper I was thinking coming up to November that getting at least close to 40 minutes was going to be possible. However what with work and having to travel a little bit more than usual and then some family commitments it never really happened. In fact a spate of Ghandi,s revenge over Christmas almost meant I never made the start line so the time I did get was quite pleasing. Saint Edmund Pacers 39:26 41:19 42:00 41:19 70.71
Hedda I'm ok with that. Excuses for not doing better include a dodgy left foot and no running but lots of eating over Christmas. Unaffiliated 54:48 54:48 54:48 54.23
IBB,MBGOG Was looking dodgy for doing this, but back out this morning after ~2 weeks off with v painful heel. As long as it doesn't flare up this evening, pretty optimistic I'll make the start. Unaffiliated 58:49 59:00

Jobe This will be a social run for me - will start thinking of PB's again next year.  
Update - paced Drell around to meet her goal of under an hour. Werrington Joggers 46:45 52:56 57:59 57.45

kiki.d Entered this in a bid to get a PB before the year is out! 25 seconds off a PB, oh well, felt pretty good for most of the course and don't think I could have pushed much harder. 40th female (39th last year), but faster time! Saffron Striders RC 47:19 47:55 48:00 47:55 65.77

Lincsfella No where near where i should be time wise but it'll come back. Its a nice race, does what it says on the tin. UKnetrunner 39:47 40:11 41:43 65.67
Marts haven't decided whether to try for a comfortable 37:30 or a mid 36 time. did 20M 3days before and will see what that's done to my legs. UPDATE Awesome. well chuffed especially 3 days after 20miler. 2nd fastest 10k ever and fastest for 14 and a half years. Felt really quite comfortable although obviously working hard. Great to catch up with No 8 and Lyra and also meet LOTL. Passed 2000miles for year on warm down with swerver, don ron,wj bullet, mrs c and mandypants Werrington Joggers 35:44 36:22 37:29 36:22 73.02

Slowly But Shirley PW time down to pretty much an equal combination of Christmas excess and painful left calf which I had to keep stopping/walking through in order just to complete this 10k!

Otherwise - great course and nice atmosphere.  Glad I did it .... and didn't give in to the urge to drop out in the early stages!  For 2009 I aim to get back on track again.  Will do this race again and hopefully pain-free! MK Lakeside Runners 54:57 55:11 1:06:03 46.75

Ted Official and dry heaved through the finish again ;)

Why couldn't the 'ficcial time have been 1 more second quicker ;) Ramsey Cycling Club 41:54 42:20 42:21 64.69
thorneygeoff Well done Jiffy - you deserved it. Regarding the race, 520 turning up out of 700 entries is very sad and shows that online early entry at this time of the year means that a quarter of people lost their money and also lots of people that would like to have run could have done so with a better system - this problem needs addressing!
