Wilmslow Half Marathon

adam57 Perfect conditions.  Due to starting near the back I started nice and slow (8m 40s pace) which I think helped me warm up Unaffiliated 1:34:52 1:34:52 1:41:00 1:34:52 63.28
Ange11 Was very pleased with this result as I was 5.5 mins quicker then I was last year on this course! It shows that my London Marathon training is going really well and fills me with confidence for it.  Fab traffic free course, great support- overall a really well organised race.

baggio71 Another 20 seconds off the PB, will get sub 1:40 before the year's out...
Great race, perfect weather and all well organised. just ran out of juice a bit on last few miles so couldnt' get to target time. for a race with a flat course reputation there's a fair few uphill bits in those last couple (or least that's how it felt!)
Only gripe would be got a bit congested in places, nothing too bad though. Congleton Harriers 1:40:44 1:40:44 1:40:44 58.65

Beejay Nice race, crowded start as usual but chip timed so not too bad. Kept pace in check in the first 7 miles and then worked hard to pick up the pace, finished strong but working hard :) Southwell RC 1:30:54 1:30:54 1:35:00 1:31:58 65.28

Chris Worthers I was about 30s behind 9 minute mile pace for most of the race which I was happy with. Then I lost about 3 minutes on  mile 10 and couldn't recover. More long training runs needed. Bolton United Harriers & AC 1:49:11 1:57:55 2:01:54 47.95

CookPassBabtridge Very lucky with the weather conditions, was a beautiful morning for running.  Start was quick and the gradual downhill over the first half got me thinking that the sub 70 was on.  Second half was tougher but kept going strongly and picked it up over the last few miles.  Pleased with another PB 5 weeks after the last one.

So really proud of just getting round and time much better than I could ever have hoped for! Manchester Harriers & AC 1:52:54 2:15:41 2:15:41 48.53

gcwenn A great race, good organisation, scenic route and lovely memento. But my one and only time running it, unless i have a big change of heart, due to the price. I know a lot of roads are closed off and the runner is really well looked after, so i am not quibbling about it. Just that there are cheaper halfs around.

Geococcyx Really pleased with the time as I was suffering from a head cold.  Because of this I was far too pessimistic with the prediction.  I'm amazed at just how many local people come out to cheer us on considering that the race goes through mostly countryside. Unaffiliated 1:32:17 1:32:17 1:40:00 1:32:17 64.66

jolguk I had no idea how this would go as I did virtually no running in the week leading up to it, although I felt fit, but it went very well - a PB by about a minute and a half. I can't say it wasn't tough, because getting a PB normally feels tough, but I went off too fast as usual but eventually realised that I could sustain that pace anyway. 1:35 was my more ambitious target and I very nearly got there. I should have been looking at my watch! This is my local race so Iit was lovely to see so many familiar faces on such a beautiful day. The chip timing was a bit of a revelation, avoiding the usual chaotic funnel. Dragons RC 1:35:07 1:35:07 1:35:07 69.23

Luiz Why do I think I'm going to regret this? My HM pb is pretty out of date, and set on this course when I tore my calf at 11 miles. I'm sure if I can train consistently I should manage a decent PB. Just need to not damage myself on the day Unaffiliated 2:17:04 2:17:04 2:15:00 2:17:04 47.58

pato1967 Although not a PB really enjoyed today went as well as could be expected with recent injuries - steady start, dug in a bit in the middle and finished strongly. It was brilliant running weather and with chip timing my only gripe about this race sorted :-) 

seems to be a lot of PB's well done everyone :-)
