atko Tactically appalling, even down to clothing. Old Saucony Jazz. Cotton T shirt. First and second miles ridiculously quick.

Temperatures as high as 29C at one point by all accounts.

Started chatting at about 8 miles instead and decided to breeze in the last few miles. Kenilworth Runners 1:20:11 1:29:29 1:39:59 1:54:29 52.44
B Rubble Very slow and congested start.  Got up to speed by 3/4 miles but then the heat started having an effect.  Expected to pick up pace but it didn't happen. Dursley Running Club 1:25:12 1:27:30 1:32:00 1:35:56 64.02

bigmunnki A personal worst! But I am not that upset, in the end it was enough just to survive the day! Too hot! Bournville Harriers 1:20:45 1:57:15 2:05:17 46.84

Bronners Am rather nervous as this is my first ever competitive run of any sort. Started running in January so am just a beginner... here goes! My main goal is to get round! My second is to get round in less than 2 hrs 30... My third is not be last! Unaffiliated 2:37:00 2:37:00 2:35:00 2:37:00 41.53

daz1927 Had planned this as my sub-1:30 attempt.  Arrived at start, and was starting to get concerned about weather conditions and temperature.  Started off OK, a bit of congestion, but was on schedule at end of mile 5.  However, was warming up and tiring, so realised it wasn't going to happen.  Eased off, and just took it easy without any risks. Village Vipers 1:26:29 1:28:00 1:29:59 1:35:22 62.95

PQ If all goes well here I'm expecting 5+ mins off my pb. ** Well that was a disaster and a half. I did a personal worst  due to the sauna like conditions. It was about 25 degrees with very little breeze or shelter. I knew I had no hope of a pb by mile 8ish let alone the 1:50 I was aiming for so I gave up the ghost and walked quite a bit. Lots of people collapsed which I did not intend to do once I knew a pb was out of the question. Sorry to those who bet on me, this would have been in the bag under normal conditions.

SteveV Hopefully i will achieve 1.45. I would like to think i could get somewhere as close to 1.40 as possible.

* provisional result* 1.45.16  waiting for official time. Way too hot out there. Was on target 1.40 pace but bombed by 7 miles. I dont know if it was a heat thing or a fitness thing!!

official time 1.44.50-very pleased Unaffiliated 1:19:01 1:44:50 1:43:00 1:44:50 55.69

WeV This should be my second half marathon assuming I enter for the Ironbridge half.

Training hard now to get up to the standard but hadn't run for about 12 years until September this year. Stafford Harriers 1:32:58 1:53:02 1:45:00 2:03:52 47.13
