Lisrun This is a tough hilly half marathon, especially if its hot. My third time. *Update* Sunny, then cloudy, then rain, then sunny again. Bit of a wind but it kept us cool. 100 Marathon Club, Elvet Striders, North East Marathon Club 1:42:36 1:49:34 2:00:00 2:00:04 57.77

mikep Went off too fast again and quicky realised I had very little left in my legs after the fast 5 mile last week. This is a great event and the course is really tough - so much up hill and lots of mud. At least the two bursts of hail/rain kept me cool.
I will try and be a bit more fit for the hills next year. Pocklington Runners 1:28:48 1:42:47 1:50:00 1:43:18 63.07

northernrunner probably the toughest race iv done yet especially with the 3 mile hill but still managed to pass quite a few people climbing it and end up finishing 5th but missed out on a prize due to entering late Blackhill Bounders 1:14:17 1:15:34 1:30:00 1:22:39 70.72

scrappy Very hard hilly race, harder than the Keswick half marathon, but have to say enjoyed it all the same will probably be back next year for another go! Blackhill Bounders 1:27:53 1:27:53 1:40:00 1:34:38 69.07
swittle I ran this 6 years in succession, the last in 1993 and always took around 100 minutes.  It's a glorious setting for a very challenging course and the 1.5 miles of off road is much longer than on the 'old' course.  Managed to run all the way :)  and even picked up speed in that last mad career down to the Showground.  5 minutes slower than my personal worst in 1991 - but that was 17 years ago, so I'm quite encouraged.

Saw one Fetchie at the start but was networking with a Harrogate AC runner about a mutual friend.
