Alf Tupper Tough of the Track Very enjoyable race in ideal conditions. Bit disappointed with my time; slightly off pace throughout and the climb up the ramp at 8k put paid to any PB hopes. Cumbernauld AAC 34:52 37:00 38:17 71.89

Big Al Widepants Training has been good but you always think you could have done more (and drunk less). Update - finally made it to the promised land of sub 45. It feels good but I want the holy of holies (sub 43). The race started with a nice gentle downhill and I got off to a good one with Phantom tucked in behind. Got a bit of a shock when he said we were through the first kilo in 3.50! and the first mile in 6.07. Settled down after that and ran 7.04, 7.20 (a 5k pb by 40 secs), 7.17, 7.28 (5 miles in 35.19 pb), 7.23 and 2.11 for the last bit. Smirring rain and cool temperature with no wind made for a pb course and that's what happened. The hill in the last kilo was on rough trail and was a bit of a killer. Even after the hill ended it was a slow grind to the finish. Onwards and upwards. It's a pb by 1.30. I've got to be delighted.

biru Approx time. Nice conditions for racing today....little wind and cool temperature. A potentially fast course for the most part, long stretch of down hill for part of the way out and no really steep bits until almost the very end. Recurrent piriformis injury didn't bother me during the race, was a good idea to take 4 days off leading upto the race.  Edinburgh Athletic Club 35:11 35:11 35:25 75.44

Dave_K Really worked for this one. Own fault due to hangover! The hill at the end is still tough. As always a really well run event. Unaffiliated 45:32 47:43 51:28 54.27
Fergus Watch time 46 dead but I think the official clock hadn't quite ticked over. Either way very happy with that time. Official time 46:01 :-( Unaffiliated 41:28 43:53 48:00 46:01 58.83

Siouxsie Ambitious prediction, but that's the time I want.Not injured this time, can run 7.40mm's for 5 miles, so it's up to me to get it. **UPDATE** Disappointed not to get sub 48. Garmin time logged just now. Should've tried harder, especially on the climb to the finish. I am very happy with the PB though and enjoyed the race. Will do it again next year. Dumfries RC 45:14 48:09 48:00 48:09 63.28
Sunbed Athlete Good course but tricky last half k uphill then around the Gas buildings.Well marshalled & organised.Got 4th place & 17 pts for the Grand Prix. Cambuslang Harriers, Scottish Veteran Harriers Club 31:29 32:18 33:18 81.30
Supervixen Far too much to drink last night, no pb here. Update...was right, sick at 9k...very own fault, wont do that again! Finished 297 out of  495, mid race mediocrity........ Unaffiliated 53:41 53:41 56:00 54:52 56.60
Vic Mason Felt very positive before and during the race which I think helped me put in a PB time.  The weather conditions were ideal for me.  Temp 14 degree and overcast with a very little breeze.  Kirkintilloch Olympians 35:15 40:26 43:00 41:21 68.08
