Aitchbee My first ever 10k! Will be happy if I get round in under 75 mins, especially now I've seen the course route!! UPDATE: spot on 75 according to chip time. Great course except the housing estate where I totally got confused about where I was (and that loop round the cul-de-sac, grrr). Unaffiliated 1:09:42 1:09:42 1:15:00 1:15:00 40.44
Alopex The second anniversary of my racing debut.  It's about time they reversed the route though eh?  :-)  
Hoping for a sub 45, & a top 200 finish

Should have pushed harder.  Ran back to Warwick almost as quickly.  Great race though UKnetrunner 42:48 44:33 45:00 45:57 59.52

Grumpy fella Hot n hilly. But then I expected nothing less. Moderately happy on the basis that I don't run well in the warm, result of being too heavy.
Good organisation. Good route, apart from one very little loop on the housing estate. Great support.
Thanks to all the marshals and apologies to the motorists who were held up, thanks for your patience.

Johnny Blaze I did this in 54 59 last year I think.
Hoping to knock a couple of mins off this year as I have dropped some pork and running better generally.

UPDATE: a big 51 23 on a very hot day. Thx to anyone who bet on me!

I wanted to go sub 50 minutes but a pb on a course which is Unaffiliated 49:28 51:23 54:00 51:23 57.98

LTW Was very hot so quite hard work. Last year it took me 1 hour exactly so I was planning on a bigger improvement. Still there is always next year Northbrook AC 56:55 57:19 59:15 54.27
Marts This will be my 6th race in 7 days so no PB but its my bday so fancied a weekend away:) couple of beers last night and 5 races earlier in week so started at comfortable pace and used it as fast training run. then ran back to Warwick afterwards. Tight start and expensive but super place to finish, excellent medal and friendly marshalls Werrington Joggers 35:44 36:22 40:00 41:02 65.50

upsy daisy I'm happy to have beaten last year's time, approx 3 mins quicker, so I must be improving. It was a warm morning, but started early, so was finished by 10. Shame about the t-shirt ( medium was the smallest they offered and was 2 inches bigger than last year's) at least the charity shop do well out of me for t-shirts. Poor goody bag for the cost of the entry........... Northbrook AC 55:52 58:13 1:03:00 1:00:30 51.62
