AJPAR Good well organised race. Went well until the last half mile when dodgy back kicked in and slowed me down a bit. Still a PB so happy. Unaffiliated 17:36 18:49 18:30 18:49 70.87
bagelFS My first ever 5k (and first ever race!) after 6 weeks of easy running, 18-20mpw. Could have run faster in first mile (crowding, I think I almost knocked over some near 7 foot man while zipping around- sorry!) and last mile most definitely but did not know limits/ability.

Dubois I don't like moaning and I did know what to expect but sadly this was the least enjoyable race I have logged on Fetch. Partly my fault for arriving a bit late, but also the organisers' fault for letting the slowest funnel out before the other funnels had gone out. And I suspect some wildly over optimistic runners as well. It was 20 minutes of rugby out there - didn't get anything like a semblance of a clear run until past 4k, so all in all rather a frustrating experience. Unaffiliated 21:03 21:32 22:30 23:17 55.54
Garfield Fourth time for me now...I keep improving each year - I have the stats from all the years I've run this one.  At least I'm not recovering from a sprained ankle like I was last year.

Anyone want to pace me at 9 min miling?  I know it's slow for a lot of you but it would most likely see me to be sub-30.  Putting down conservative (perhaps pessimistic) prediction...though I'm hoping to do better! FERC 28:36 30:51 32:00 30:51 50.01
Hills of Death (HOD) Realistic well see on the day. Not sure how quick I am at the mo. Pleased ran well yes I gave 100% (and I had a Red Dot ;) I know people. Tried for sub 22 just couldn't do it - time not official yet, I think this was the time need to check later. Mile 1 6.43 thought not bad can I hold on second mile well it was 6.36 :) third mile 6.35 and then just dragged my arse over the finish line slowed a little bit measured this at 3.35 miles I think the underpasses had something to do with it !

jonesj_01 Just too many people in front to get a good speed at the start. Need to get up front next year Unaffiliated 22:30 22:30 21:30 22:30 58.03

Rapid Snail No red dot, no chance of a time.  5:20 first km and only got any sort of pace up for final km or two but even then was at no point bothering to push it.  Would not do it again. Unaffiliated 20:50 20:50 20:49 22:33 58.71
rich_c I'm with you Dubois. Very difficult at the start and frustrated with the slow runners who managed to get to the front. Probably ran an extra k due to dodging and weaving. That said, it was well organised and had a great atmosphere. Would do it again but wouldn't expect to be running for a PB. Unaffiliated 22:00 24:35 24:35 54.64
Runner Without a Clue This race is longer than 5k, its listed as 3.5m.  Mental start, so many people tripping up everywhere and slow runners at the front but hey it was good to be back in the game! Unaffiliated 21:58 22:40 22:40 65.15

ToastRunner Ok race, was hoping for sub 17min, might have started too fast but gave it everything. Better organisation than last year. Crawley AC 16:26 17:01 17:01 75.99
