BigChiefRunningBore Update - mud plus mud and even more mud. In fact it was really muddy. Good fun though Watford Joggers 1:10:00 1:09:36 60.69
Blackers800 It's been 27 years since I ran XC at Parliament Hill, so this one'll bring back the memories I'll wager.  **uPDATE** Nope - didn't remember anything.  Enjoyed the run, but absolutley knackered after a very tough week at work, so performance poor. Southampton AC, Southern Counties Veterans AC 1:01:22 69.34

Muds Times on this course are irrelevant. You just have to run to experience a true cross country race. Yes & almost in the heart of London. The Souths best kept race. The only race over the classic 9 miles. They have to make it easier when a National as runners from other areas cannot cope!! :) :)
Superb course. Loads of mud, proper mud. Short hills but muddy. I am slowing gracefully but ran well. I think I would have benefited from a fourth lap! Ultra still in my legs. Watford Joggers 1:08:29 1:05:00 1:02:56 72.20
mxhornet No prediction as the toughness of the course can vary greatly according to weather 

Update - muddy as ever which doesn't suit my running style however main problem was my spikes that made my feet hurt all the way around, I gave it up as a race on first lap and just cruised around after that. Bure Valley Harriers 1:15:40 58.55
No.8 ™ That is the hardest race I have done. Strong winds, hills and shin deep, semolina like mud. Unaffiliated 1:02:00 66.96
run fat boy run first time at this distance in xc, had to dig deep, mentally & physically, hardest race so far, will have to purchase a pair of spikes for next time. Thetford AC 1:16:32 58.38
