DeeGee 2:59:56 is what the finish line clock said and I'm sticking by it! Not as hilly as I feared, actually, able to keep a decent pace going (for me anyway). Good to see Fetchies before the start too! Sprint finish as well! Sorry to whoever I surged past at the end to try and make it under the 3 hour mark! 100 Marathon Club, Cleethorpes AC 2:24:50 3:00:10 3:00:00 3:00:10 47.32

flanker Looks like I'm going to try to do this at PMP.  Not sure I'm quite in that form yet, but even if I tail off the last few miles there should be a decent PB in it (assuming the ongoing niggles hold off).    Place your bets...

Girlie Going to mince round with WW, anything under 3:30 would be fine:-)
***Update** Ran with WW until around 22k, when I seemed to pull away from him.
RW strategy worked very well for me, although more walking in the final stages as the hills were hillier!  
Was completely spent and knackered afterwards, nothing left for any kind of sprint finish.  Happy with time, although I know I could have done better, had I had more training recently.
Fab to see so many Fetchies old and new there today:-) Bushfield Joggers 3:21:47 3:30:17 3:25:00 3:30:17 46.52

Running Caz Felt quite good for most of this until the last 3M. Really pleased with splits. Was, as I remembered a very 'rolling' course but took it very easy on inclines. Had a brief walk at 25km on the incline and then back into it. Had to stop to pick up gloves and hat that I hid and then found the run up to town pretty hard but stuck with it. Remember last year I was flying through the town (not sure how accurate that memory is). This year I got up the incline but then had a brief walk before making myself continue and I had a mate in my sights. Field almost finished me off but made it to the finish 4mins faster than last year, making this a p.b - well done whoever bet on me :-) Cobra RC 2:40:50 2:40:50 2:40:50 58.92

swerver Ran this route on Friday 9th (18.4m as missed off the field at end) did it in 2hr49 as a training run, bloody hard but nice course. Werrington Joggers 2:28:26 2:44:55 2:40:00 2:44:55 51.65
swittle 5 years snce I ran this excellent event but I doubt I'll go under the 2:18 I posted that day!  Undulating, scenic, well organised and friendly, this sums up why I reject 'big city' events.

trouty 45th, quite a good run but did not go to plan, I went too fast at the start and decided to try and keep it at about PMP but I slowed a fair bit in the last 5K Doncaster Triathlon Club 2:05:01 2:05:01 2:10:00 2:05:01 75.37
Ultra Sparkly Bridget (USB) Will try not to go off too fast this year!  UPDATE  Still went off too fast but kept it going much better from last year.  Let DeeGee beat me on the line as we both tried to beat the clock to the 3  hour mark.  I'm sure we did but the offical time is 3:00:13 including 25 seconds to cross the line.  A HUGE PB :-) Buckingham and Stowe Running Club 3:00:11 3:00:11 3:10:00 3:00:11 56.65

Zippy 123 I did finish in under 2:45 - based on the finish line clock - honest!!.  However, I guess I need to go with the published result...boo hiss!  On the plus side it will be a bit easier to beat next year...AND it was a PB! Sinfin RC, Derby City Council Running Club 2:45:08 2:45:08 2:45:00 2:45:08 51.83
