AddledAdder My first anniversary race.
This is the 10K to crack 40 minutes!  Well it was before I got knocked out by a viral chest thingy and stopped running for two weeks...  Let's see how the training recovers the pace...
UPDATE: Missed PB by 3 seconds.  GRRRR!  Saw PPB and gave her a big shout.  Calf tight again.  Back to the drawing board. Unaffiliated 40:37 40:40 39:59 40:40 66.47

CD Enjoyable race with supportive marshals and a good warm up session. Would have benefitted from a water station at Kirkstall Abbey and a more stringent observing of expected finish times. Scunthorpe & District AC 48:13 53:59 53:59 55.03

Laudy Watch time, but can't see the chip time being much different. Need to get some speedwork done, as I had plenty of stamina but no ability to up the pace for the second half of the race. York Knavesmire Harriers 44:11 46:02 44:59 46:02 57.88

mikep Don't know what went wrong with my warm up. Within 5 strides of the start my calf muscles locked up. I nearly stopped but after 5 minutes they eased off. Either I missed the K markers or they were not there (other than 1 & 5 K).Felt pretty grim after 15 minutes after the turn - felt worse because I didn't know how far I had to go. 
Came as a relief to realise I how close  I was to the finish. Well there is a first, race clock time faster than my offical time. Nice to see 6 or so Fetch Shirts hope everyone did OK.

Northern Exile My second Dash and was hoping to get under 44 minutes .... not to be sadly and in fact was a bit slower than last year.  Not good. Royal Navy AC, North Leeds Fell Runners 43:44 44:26 43:45 44:26 64.16

Princess Purple Bubbles I loved my running today...there was the odd walk break in there but the main thing is I did it. I smiled, made a new fetchie, beat my time from Nissan back in August and got a 5km pb in the race (went through 5km in 40mins then fell apart!

Running in my fetch top was really amazing....being yelled at and supported across the road was really good and helped spur me on! Unaffiliated 59:36 1:25:22 1:25:22 34.81

Rich963 Very good day - weather was spot on, start not too crowded (at least where I was) and managed to run pretty evenly to a new PB!  Kms were 4.00 3.53 4.02 4.16 4.05 4.00 3.55 4.15 3.59 4.04.  Stilton Striders RC 39:49 40:29 40:00 40:29 65.21
rob_sturman Unofficial time on my watch of 46:11. Very nice flat course, with the roads closed off. Reached half-way in exactly 23 minutes, so pretty even first and second halves. Crowded at the start so had to weave in and out for the first 2k or so until hit a steady pace. V pleased with the time!

Edit: Official time of 46:08. Finished in 998th place, with a net overtaking of 420 people! Unaffiliated 41:31 46:08 48:00 46:08 57.31
samsoness Very exciting as my first 10k, not sure what to expect. Wanted to walk at 5k but my companions wouldn't wait for me. Glad afterwards to do the time I did, big achievement, and I hope the first race of many more! Unaffiliated 1:09:35 1:09:35 1:15:00 1:09:35 44.66
shorty25 First race after a 2wk break & no races for 3wks, to be honest I'll be happy with anything around 48m.
Well i'm very pleased with my time, felt very good. Not back to my best by any means but a hell of a lot better than the last few months. Yippee. York Knavesmire Harriers 45:14 45:14 46:26 46:29 63.93

SimonF Specific 10K Training has gone well, and hope to beat my PB at least, but will be gunning for 40 minutes. ***********. Race went OK but my splits were a bit up and down and had a bad patch between 3 and 4 k. Finished strongly but still quite a way from that sub 40.

Slider45 I feel I had a really good race - hit and went under my kilometre times during the race and had a good kick at the end.  I was a little worried beforehand as I was trying to shake a cold but no problems and the conditions were excellent.  Thanks for all the bets everyone placed - it's quite a motivator.  NB the time given is the offical chip time - the gun time was 39:04. Valley Striders AC 34:17 38:15 39:00 38:15 69.05
Spans Another good race on the come back trail after 3.5months out injured, and it was very nice to be back running for Wales again.

sue c very pleased, solid performance, too quick at the start though and shoelace came undone. ran through marathon training so legs less fresh than they could have been. Wish everyone would stand where they are supposed to! Rothwell & District Harriers 43:32 44:10 45:00 44:10 68.02

Tinywhitevan Thought I'd PB, but set off too fast. Did a 5k PB, but paid for it on the way back. Disappointed, but more annoyed, as I know it was my own stupid fault. Last week in the Barnsley, I ran two really steady miles, and felt great for the rest of the run and did a PB. So, why did I think running flat out at the start of this race was a good idea???

TooLilac training has gone to pot with the dark nights. Am not sure I can do it!
Lots of confusion at the start, and was disappointed at lack of km markers and NO water station. Enjoyed the race and felt FAB in the final sprint. My weekly hill reps definitely paid off going up that steep slip road just before the finish. Good race, poor organisation Unaffiliated 59:30 1:05:00 1:25:00 1:05:00 46.09
