AdrianR Race day was very wet!  I ran a steadier race than at Leicester and didn't tire as quickly.  My time was gun to chip and it took me more than a minute to cross the start line, so overall I am quite satsifed with my time. Unaffiliated 1:43:50 1:53:15 1:55:22 54.57

Maclennane Watch time as chip time turned out to be gun to finish.

Fantastic run, cold and wet and just hilly enough to be fun. Oh, and have I mentioned I'm faster than Hoax? R2D2 Hash House Harriers, Whitchurch Hampshire Adventure Race 1:42:27 1:51:47 1:54:00 1:51:47 52.23
MadRobby Well organised race and great support despite the drizzle.  Started off (rather optimistically) @ 90 min pace, got to half way dead on 45 min, but suffered for it later and slowed rapidly towards the end.  Knocked 4 mins of previous PB so delighted with that.

Marmotte Going into it with limited expectations as training has been sporadic...................decided to go for a sub 1.40 pace and see how long I could sustain it for. Having low expectations tends to relax you and I found it comfortable for long periods although the steady drag from 9-11 always gets you in the end. Great, well organised race and not much fun for the organisers in the rain. Well done! Steyning AC 1:37:33 1:37:33 1:43:00 1:41:25 59.20

Nors Lovely race ,poring of rain but really enjoyed myself and pleased to find my Mojo again. Friend  Mel wasn't well so I hung back.  She finished so it was all worth while , it was not about time, this time. Unaffiliated 2:18:00 2:18:00 2:15:00 2:27:00 46.19

Rapid Snail Tougher course than Brentwood.  Hopefully in slightly better shape. #Update.  Missed PB by 4 seconds. No excuses.  Except the usual badly placed mile markers and a chronic stitch for the last 4 miles.  Went through the 12th mile marker in about 1:30:15, good enough for 1:38:30 and despite a 7 minute 13th mile on Garmin and a sprint finish managed to miss out.  Still, beat last years time by 3 minutes and paced the race as well as I have ever, perhaps a little too conservative early on. Unaffiliated 1:38:33 1:38:48 1:38:15 1:38:52 59.76

The great dollop Pics are up ! Enjoy.

Well done to you all in the rain, it was looking pretty wet from where I was sitting (also getting wet!), but temperature wise quite nice for a run I'd have thought ?

Wheabs Running better than last year so should be able to beat the time - but I'll see how it goes on the day and might just enjoy the run instead!

As it turned out I ran a well paced race and took 4 minutes of last years time! Overall very enjoyable even with the damp weather. Wilmslow RC 1:35:23 1:36:38 1:42:00 1:39:01 60.63
