Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.

The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

This event is listed on these dates:

Quite a nice run along part of the cycle path although I struggled a bit midway and on the stretch along the roadside towards the dunglass roundabout. finished a bit stronger on the last 3k though to record a PB.
Same as Helensburgh....sore feet blah, blah........
a bit better tonight, steady 4:10s then a 3:45 to finish. enjoyed it.
Fingers crossed I survive Clydebank so I can give this race a try....lol

UPDATE - Well following the sh!t week I've had following my motorbike accident last Friday I managed to finish this one, although I did struggle from the Esso garage after only 2.5 miles

Now I need to ramp up my training over the next 6 days before I head back to work where I'll continue the gym work I've been doing. Then I intend to run early in the morning on holiday.

After setting out at 35 min pace at Clydebank and struggling badly I decided to start a bit more conservatively. Reached halfway in 18.13 then managed to pick things up. Last 4K in 14.15 and passed loads. After a few bad results starting to head in the right direction again, but back to sub 35 is still looking a long way off.
Missed Clydebank for non-running reasons ... still feeling positive for sub-40.
Post race - pleased with time, cheers kyt. Strange run, struggled with heat and pace through 5k (19.45) then somewhere between 6 and 7k found a good zone mentally and kept the pace going well. Even then didn't feel quite fast enough from 7-9. Just under 36 for 9 so a good strong finish. Misread my watch on finishing straight - thought it said 39.50 but must have been 38.50 - so stunned and pleased when I still saw 39 on the clock at finish line. First sub 40 at long last :) 109th out of 744.
dehydrated and misjudged and breathless. congrats to yano on a blinding pb. loopy garmin readings for anyone else? 5k split of 19.47 proved a little too racy. lost motivation between 5 and 7 again.

My actual watch time was 34:35, which matched the chip time. Pleased to get another PB, and my second sub 35 minute 10K in a week.

After setting my personal best of 37:10 here in 2004. I finally cracked the 37 minute barrier after three years of trying.
