Kenilworth Half Marathon

Sun October 5 2008 Listed by Adrian
33 Entrants Club PB SB Pred Time WAVA
Adrian Bad race for me, too much water in my shoes. Official time 1:36:53 adjusted by 30secs because of wrong turn by the front runners at the start. Town & Country Harriers 1:31:48 1:34:47 1:37:23 64.65
Alopex I have more excuses than you can shake a stick at.  Just to say that at 10m I was fine (albeit only running just under 8mm), & then I paid the price of a month of no running at all, & 24 hours without eating (long story).  

Still I do like this race & route, & shall be back for a 1:35 next year UKnetrunner 1:37:00 1:37:00 1:45:00 1:49:01 54.74

Greenman Bit of a mix up at the start, we were sent the wrong way! Very wet and a bit breezy. The official results seem to be about 30 secs too fast, probably to compensate for the mistake - this is my Grantham Running club 1:20:38 1:21:46 1:24:30 72.09

Krissie Second half. Dont think I could do much worse than in the first :-)...........pb by over 16 minutes, very very happy. Lovely marshalls, cold cold cold, didn't mind the hills, muddy finish was fun even if it did ruin my new trainers. Sparkhill Harriers 1:42:18 2:03:38 2:15:00 2:03:38 52.74

pussy cat hilly course in monsoon weather - what more could I ask for!!!!  Felt really jelaous that some of my friends were doing th GNR annd the weather was fab up there.  However, good course, well marshalled, just  wish I'd done better - theres always next year!!!! Northbrook AC 1:39:18 1:43:08 1:45:00 1:46:15 68.96

Relkeel66 My garmin measured this race short, wondered if anyone else found this?
Official time 31 secs faster than mine, so i think I will stick with my own as being accurate. Wye Valley Runners 1:38:08 1:42:16 1:44:00 58.57

SimH Great race, would have gone under 2 hours if it was not for 2 huge (and I mean huge) blisters on my feet. Unaffiliated 2:00:32 2:00:32 1:59:00 2:00:32 48.68

taulpaul Terrible conditions - cold, constant heavy rain and strong winds made this a tough race.  Other than that scenic and enjoyable course with great encouraging marshalls despite the weather.  Just a cheap looking medal at the finish as t-shirt arrived in post prior to the race.  Came in position 197 out of 480 finishers. Birmingham Swifts 1:33:28 1:43:34 1:43:34 57.31
The Husky PB by nearly a minute the first mile was 20 secs slower because marshalls didnt direct us the right way.  I timed myself as 1hr 20:45 so they must have adjusted the clock by 30 secs to compensate for the cock up.  Still i'll take 1hr 20:12 thats a bonus.  The wet, windy and hilly conditions didnt suit everyone a sub 1:20 would be possible in more favourable conditions. Centurion RC 1:20:19 1:20:19 1:21:00 1:20:19 73.90

upsy daisy Cold, wet and windy.....but still 15 mins quicker than last year. This is my watch time, but the official time is about 20 sec less. Never had that before!! Northbrook AC 2:10:40 2:11:25 2:17:00 2:13:10 50.99
wildebeast hoping to go sub 90 but not sure i have the speed this year but i love this race
