APC Much slower than expected due to injury, should've been around 1.25. Another suspected short Blackpool course, have now seen 7 garmin reports 3 at 12.99 miles and none showing more than 13.02 miles. Sadly not a lot of choice in the T shirt department, no goody bags for a lot of later finishers. This may well be my last Blackpool event, may stick to club organised events in future licensed by appropriate Athletic Associations or Authorities. Unaffiliated 1:28:50 1:29:40 1:29:40 67.94

CottamRunner Great North West Half Marathon - Blackpool.

Started out with 5 x under 7 min miles with a Runner's World pacer who was actually targetting a sub 1.30 half overall. Felt tough but manageable. Was going well to 5, maybe 6 miles - then just kind of blew-up. Lost a few mins but then re-scheduled pace towards a 1.35 race. 

Home in 1.33.48 ... complete with a tumble over the line (lots of cuts and bruises - all quite unnecessary!!). .

Splits: 5k in 20.53, 5M in 34.10, 10k in 42.45 (6-10 in 21.52), 15k in 1.05.43 (11-15 in 22.58), 10M in 1.11.00, 20k in 1.29.32 (16-20 in 23.49), 21.1k / 13.1M in 1.33.48.  Northern Veterans AC, Red Rose RRC 1:25:48 1:31:39 1:37:29 1:33:48 62.56

Fat Boy Very well organised race.  Good strong run and pleased to finish 8th overall.  First few miles were a bit slushy underfoot but this didn't really affect the times much.  Carnegie Harriers 1:12:31 1:17:17 1:17:17 78.22

TnoP PB but hurt!!
Did well to get the race on as it snowed overnight. FERC 2:04:58 2:04:58 2:10:00 2:04:58 51.24
Whoever Snow / ice at the start but thankful for low windspeed - course is straight up and down the prom at Blackpool. Relatively flat and wide course, well organised. Tried to run an even pace and achieved it for a change! Second HM PB this year, so hopefully can break 1:30 target sometime this year. Northern Veterans AC 1:26:43 1:33:35 1:40:00 1:33:35 69.02
