dovetail started well for first 5-6 miles then started tiring and struggled towards the end. Nice race though very hot on the day and good friendly atmosphere. Will do again next year. Bexhill Runners 1:47:40 1:53:26 1:52:00 1:55:08 52.50
Dowsey Looking at the results today there were some very impressive runs by the Vets.   Just a shame I was not one of them.  I think I must be losing my mojo! Unaffiliated 1:51:01 1:51:01 2:00:10 56.68

Fitguy Awesome race in rather warm conditions. Was aiming for 1hr 35min. I started fast and Flo faster! Watched him go but then he overtook me at 6.5miles - not sure how! Watched him go again but caught him up at 9.5miles & when I wanted us to run the rest of the race together, he had nothing left. Chased the 70 yr old who won that category for last 2 miles & overtook him in a sprint finish. Then realised I had a new PB - nearly 3.5 minutes off my previous best at the Dover Half! Flo finished in 1hr 34min 19secs (which was excellent for his 1st race at the distance!) and Lyndsey did really well in just under 2hr 10mins. Well done guys and thanks for a great day!

flo73 Great run for a PB.... Just no energy in the legs... 69'47 at 10miles.... Then complete collapse, did not even know  if would finish... Nigel was awesome, always is, he will have to tell me his secret... And Lynds came home in less than 2h08 when she was targeting 2h15... Well done the two of you, well impressed!
As for me will have to learn my lesson and start slower next time... 4'19 is a long way to go if I want to go below 90minutes... Unaffiliated 1:34:19 1:34:19 1:31:00 1:34:19 62.21

Ginger N Combination of a quick start, sustained period of high height rate led to suffering for the last couple of miles, missed sub 80 but got a PB. Beckenham RC 1:19:36 1:21:04 1:21:04 72.02
Gobi Evening all 

Paddock Wood Half report. The plan was 6min miles, the result was 1.17.38 

Splits 
5miles 29.40
10miles 59.16

Back pain inside the 1st two miles was a concern as was the feeling it was rather hard work running this slowly. By around 8 miles everything clicked and at 10 I headed for home. All in all a solid effort.

Rach ran 1.21.46 and finished 2nd. NICE !!!!!!!!!

Kevski Over the moon, 4 minutes off my half marathon PB, set at Dartford last year, 1:23:52. Worked hard, went through 10 miles a minute quicker than 10 mile PB and maintained it. Nothing left for a kick over the last 200m, so paced it right and worked hard and made it hurt. Cambridge Harriers, Dulwich Park Runners 1:23:52 1:23:52 1:24:45 1:23:52 69.63
Laura27 The BIG one for me too, will be aiming for 1.50...might be a tall order but I'll try and get as close to that time as poss. eek! **EDIT** woohooo pleased with my time, although wasn't 1.50, couldn't have done any better on the day! Unaffiliated 1:51:12 1:51:12 1:53:00 1:51:12 58.63

LyndseyLou First ever Half marathon, fantastic run.  Support was uplifting - from public, marshalls and fellow runners so thank you all very much!  Well organised, and coped no problems with the fact that I turned up wanting to run under my husbands number. Unaffiliated 2:08:35 2:08:35 2:15:00 2:08:35 50.83

Rach E 2nd lady (behind Clare Elms). Ran as hard as I could and, although not the time I was hoping for, I'm pleased with the result.  Blew up rather badly(!!) but was able to put in a good last mile-and-a-bit. Obviously couldn't have run any faster today and even though I got tired my legs felt strong throughout. A very nice race and well organised, but the course wasn't as quick as I'd hoped and I'd say it was Aldershot, Farnham & District AC, Team Kennet 1:20:28 1:20:28 1:19:59 1:21:46 79.83
