Baldy Dave How's that for a prediction?A little hot but a great race.The underpasses & running through the NCP just add to the character and you can't beat a big stadium finish. Unaffiliated 1:32:03 1:32:03 1:38:00 1:37:56 62.20

Bazza Mental note - dont shave plums a couple of days before race again! And if you do, get some vaso slapped on. In pain, but just the plums. Really happy to set a pb, and a hot day. Maybe below 1 hour 50 next year? Who knows.

Spliats were 8.33, 8.23, 8.27, 8.33, 8.39, 8.26, 8.26, 8.18, 8.49, 8.37, 8.47, 9.04, 9.03 Unaffiliated 1:43:41 1:52:28 1:52:28 51.92

Cavey Gutted!!! It all started off ok clocking 8:15-8:30 min miles, but fell off the pace at about 8 miles, dropping down to 9m/m. Then at 10 miles the wheels just fell off!! Ended up walking a fair bit. Was hoping for a PB, but thought i'd at least beat last years time of 1:58, but it wasn't to be. Don't know what went wrong, maybe I set off too fast, maybe I under estimated how hilly it was, but am now slightly worried about Blackpool in 2 weeks!!

Clarky I will probably be still recovering from FLM, so would be happy with around 1.45. Update: Outside chance of a PB - Will be going for it! Under-estimeted my fitness, took a big chunck out of my PB and a negative split. North Derbyshire RC 1:30:44 1:30:44 1:43:00 1:37:45 59.74

Dipper Prediction: Sheffield 10k time in April suggests that I'm on target for 1:34.  Got a knotted calf, but should get a PB regardless.  Result: Storming race, great weather, good organisation, wonderful stadium start/finish and a minute and a half under my (optimistic) PB prediction. Unaffiliated 1:33:32 1:33:32 1:35:00 1:33:32 62.42

katiewoo13 My first Half Marathon so not looking to get a fast time, will be happy to get round and enjoy it.   Hoping to shake this cold by the weekend though! Result:  Really enjoyed it and got a reasonable time.  The crowds were excellent & the course really enjoyable and varied.   Struggled a bit in the last 3 miles, until then was on track for a good sub 2hr finish but not too upset as I am glad to have got my first one done.

McGettingThere Aiming to PB and go under 1:30 - the Ranby 10 mile suggests it may be possible. Disappointed if I don't at least get close. Woot woot - seeing as I was ill for the first half of the week I'm not sure where this came from but I'm not going to complain. Very chuffed with an even pace - 10 - 12 were complete torture but seems worth it now. Penistone Footpath Runners AC, Fell Runners Association 1:24:45 1:28:47 1:30:00 1:28:47 66.09

Steady Fast A real buzz for me as it was my first half-marathon. Ecclesall Road and the town centre were high points but slog back to Don Valley Stadium sapped me of everything ! Will do again though Penistone Footpath Runners AC, Fell Runners Association 1:25:56 1:45:37 1:55:00 1:50:47 52.70
stuart little going to have a crack at the PB, marginal at best...
UPDATE:
Gave it everything I could, but wasn't where near where I wanted to be after 13.1 miles. Sorry to those that had a flutter on me... Beverley AC, Sheffield RC 1:18:41 1:23:45 1:22:00 1:23:45 69.71
