Cormorant Nice race, and dangerous proof that you can run a 10K on hardly any training. It felt hot out there and I was glad of the shower after Old Trafford. Forgot to tie on my chip, like an idiot, so this time is from my watch. Cranleigh Tortoise & Hare Runners 44:56 47:29 47:00 48:18 62.20

DaveM1962 Nice flat course - first 10k - even with staggered starts still al lot of people running. I will do it again though! Selby Striders, UKnetrunner 47:11 53:27 55:00 54:40 52.74

Ehlne Any other casualties in this race...?  I got elbowed and tripped up by some pushy guy after about 2k.  I cried out in pain as both knees cruised along the hot gravel but he didn't even look round - obviously too set on getting that PB.  Hobbled through the rest of the race and was relieved to get back in once piece in under 1 hour.  :(  To all those macho guys looking for your 10k PB, please do the sensible and considerate thing and steer clear of the Great Manchester Run.  Choose a small race for everyone else's sake. Manchester Harriers & AC 50:57 56:17 49:49 56:17 54.14

Hev Not expecting a PB, as it will be rammed!! Going to enjoy the atmosphere and have a nice run.  Will save PB for the City of Manchester 10K in June!!
No PB as expected but still pleased with my time - really enjoyable race - looking forward to the Great Wales Run in July! Unaffiliated 53:12 55:28 58:35 51.78

Jocky fifth GMR. though ran london, still nowhere near 10k race fitness.
 Happy with the outcome. PB for this race by just a few seconds. Hope this is a good sign of fitness coming back and aim is now to get under 40 mins again. Time was helped by starting at front. Weather good,  and crowd  really supportive this year. Swinton Running Club 38:52 39:45 42:00 40:04 70.81
jolguk I wouldn't bet on me. I haven't felt very fit since a few weeks before FLM, to be honest! 

UPDATE - Oh well, not too bad. A long way off my PB, but I hadn't expected much, and - just - achieved my 45 minute target for today. It was way too hot for me, too. The crowd support was much better than I expected, actually, although the changes in the course I think make it slightly harder than when I did it a couple of years ago. The big race feel is as fun as ever. Dragons RC 42:55 43:25 46:30 44:59 67.60

Luiz Wasn't impressed with this. Ran in the last wave with mum, and must have lost 5 minutes weaving through the hoards of walkers from this wave and the wave infront. Good atmosphere though, but wouldn't pay £30 to do it again! Unaffiliated 57:30 57:50 1:10:00 1:03:40 47.64
M62 Santa Dissapointed. Drank to much juice before the race, was not prepared for heat, started too fast and got a stitch in Old Trafford. First race for 14 years though! Unaffiliated 40:43 48:20 52:00 51:34 51.99

now andyk2708 DO NOT BET ON ME.
Struggling to regain fitness, after injury and picking up a chest infection (again). Haven't done any serious running since the Marathon on the 01st April and the 10k in Dublin a fortnight later was a nightmare. Not looking forward to this... 

**UPDATE***
Pleased with this run, had to stop at 5k to use my inhaler, but I expected this, as my cardio level is quite poor, due to lack of training. No pain in the legs, for the first time since Feb!! Happy days..

  Unaffiliated 46:06 51:24 52:12 52.11
Obigone 2nd year for this one and I'm hoping for a P.B.! Last year was really difficult due to dodging the vast numbers of runners who insisted on starting at the front, only to find themselves walking after 1km!!!**UPDATE** Happy to break my P.B. here. Once again the start was very congested with the resulting dodging about! Weather was a big let down with showers and overcast conditions promised, only to turn out clear skies and bright(hot!) sunshine! Actually I felt good all the way round and if the weather wasn't so hot I would have PB'd even better! Stockport Harriers & AC 40:21 43:37 46:00 45:07 65.48
ozzie2920 So Fed up am getting slower however down to pulling a calf 2 weeks before the event and not being right on the day !!! ( any excuse ) Thats why I revamped my membership here to get motivated again .
Only did 19 miles training in the last 4 weeks so theres your answer Unaffiliated 56:53 1:01:51 1:00:00 1:06:39 42.91
PamB Quite pleased.  2km marker was in wrong place though, so thought my pace was better than in was.  Would have liked a faster time, but pleased to have just got round, really. Unaffiliated 59:50 1:02:04 1:06:20 45.73

Red Robin Fantastic atmosphere. Wish I'd got myself further to the front for the start though.....to avoid tripping over 6ft bananas and a few giraffes !! Think I could have knocked a couple more minutes off. Some very attractive girls running....maybe I'll run backwards next year !!! Unaffiliated 47:56 47:56 55:00 50:52 52.61
