This event is listed on these dates:

What a fab race! Brilliant marshalls and lots of really friendly people. Felt great until 10 miles and then lack of training and experience showed itself and my legs turned to lead. Still got a pb and just under my predicted time -so hopefully I've kept everyone who bet on me happy!! I'll definately be back again next year!! Now- let me go find another race to do!
Update: I've been suffering with man-flu most of the week so I wouldnt risk a bet. Gutted really as I thought I might be on for a pb. Apologies to the person who's already bet.
The flu took its effect. Legs really tired and sore at the end. Started going backwards from 5 miles on.
Yahoo..!! (other search engines are available..) A new PB..!

First time I've thought I was in with a chance for many years. Took the first 2 or 3 miles steady to see what pace I was settling at and happy to find I was on course for about 1:50. Managed to keep the pace going all the way round, not without a lot of help from a nice lady called Fiona from Newcastle.
Wooho!! First half, really enjoyed it! Bit windy, but better weather than expected!
This is watch time, so official time will be 10-20 secs slower. A superb race and faultless in every respect!! Was hoping for a PB at least and sub 1:45 at best. In the end I was a bit gutted not to dip under 1:40. Maybe at Reading!!
Blimey - cheque's cashed, I'm IN!!!! this will be my 1st HM, training is going ok so far but I'm super slow.
My first, and I think, my last H-M. Felt pretty rubbish from the start and by mile 3, knew I had no business running today. Hurt all the way round, and am surprised I finished. Even more shocked that I came in 10 mins faster than my prediction!
The organisation was incredible and the marshalls we really encouraging and helpful. Lots of friendly runners and a chance to meet some fab Fetchies. Wish I'd been able to come to the pub.
Feel like I earned that sweatshirt with blood and sweat! Still, raised quite a bit for Jane's Appeal so am dead chuffed about that!!!
Northern Exile
Looking forward to this, my major challenge is to run a sub-1:35 half-marathon and there's no better place to try and do it than the Brass Monkey, however I have to be realistic and my target is 1:36.30 and that will probably kill me - anything less will be a bonus. The last two years I've ran around 1:38.30 here, so that's a lot to make up ... I will be training hard to make it a reality.

Stop Press: It was windy, I was off-form. Sorry to all those who bet on me .... not a PB I'm afraid.
Right then...gonna be VERY close....I am about as fit as I was for mt PB half but that was on the great Lake Vrynwy course......a risky but possible bet UPDATE......stomach couldn't take the last 3 miles...to much energy lost this week
Enjoyed the race took me 3 miles to get going then pcik up the pace and finished quite strong unoffical Pb by my watch just wish they had chip timming.Nice to meet a few fetchies after thank to PP for shouting me home.
Nice 1 , cheque cashed so I'm in looking forward to it now. *** Just couldn't muster the little extra speed to knock the 18secs off for a PB , but if I'm truthful I'm happy with the run, not done the distance since last years GNR due to injury and no pain from it so that's another plus, course was OK a bit of water on the sides of the roads but with the amount of rain we've had that was expected, a big well done to the Knavesmire Harries for the organisation, loads of marshalls round the course all shouting encouragement which was appreciated especially in the later stages, happy with the outcome and i hope i won the fetches who bet on me some points ;-).***
Should Av Run Quicker
Looking forward to this, as it's meant to be flat and fast, going all out for a PB.
*Update* Well what a windy day which seemed to be a headwind and head/cross wind for 8 miles, felt pretty good most of the but lost a bit of steam in the last 3 miles, I knew a few other club members where behind me so it helped pushing on as much as I could, a PB by over 1 minute.
Never hit target pace into the wind, and then slowed down coming back, not a very good race if viewed against target, but a pb in a stiff breeze, not bad.
Baldy Dave
I think this one has come round too quickly for me to run a PB no matter how flat it is.
Not run anything over 9 miles since Amsterdam so I may run out of steam.
Felt pretty good considering how ill I'd felt during the week. Was cruising up till about 9 miles, lost quite a lot on the last 2 miles. No splits due to losing garmin
shortnginger - runningfrommybelly
i'll be training hard and fast for this one and WILL be trying for a sub 1.45 pb
race was great - i was crap!! sorry to the betters!!
hope to go sub 1.22 *** update not run at any race pace for over 3 weeks due to left knee problems 2 weeks ago couldn't even complete 5 mile club run so well pleased with today and the positive of today is i was 3 minutes quicker than last year and it was head wind for first 6-7 miles.
sue c
Very breezy!
Happy with my race, decided not to race all out but so run relaxed and consistently. Started slow and was a bit conjested but felt fine. Miles 3-7 very exposed and windy and lost time here but felt great, really strong and relaxed. From then on I ran evenly but my splits picked up to 7.20's. Last mile was sub 7 and windy tho.
Can knock off 60-90 sec if an all out race and less windy but still very happy to run a PB and to have more to come.
Cat the Dog Lover
Not my official time as it appears we got our numbers mixed up!
Complete lack of training and lack of pre-race fuel told a simple tale for this run which was 10 mins outside my pb.
Lesson learned.
once againthe organisers arranged for a dry day and the formation fly-by from the 5 geese at the start line was every bit as good as the red arrows over the Tyne Bridge!
Great event, great organisation and marshalling and a great day
Under 2:10!!!!!! Oh my god!!!!!
Tutu Much
Really looking forward to this!
not done any speed work so not expecting great results!
Brilliant race although a bit breezy. Kept a steady pace and more than happy with the result. Thanks for those who bet on me - it gave me that extra boost
Great race, headwind for first six miles then became increasingly warm, good return leg, managed a PB.
Heavy treader
Disaster!!! 7 mins off pace here,nice and flat should've been a PB,teach me for going out whilst i'll,will have to make amends at ackworth!
Very windy, nice course, fantastic facilities - pleased with PB
Dickie York
PB by about 3 mins beats previous PB from 2001!
Ex-pat Scot
Started too fast (as ever) and settled to 6:45 miling but faded badly at 10 miles and managed to hang on for a sub-90 by the skin of my teeth
