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?

Thanks,
Ian Williams aka Fetch

jumbo
very windy!!!
Vicksta
Very pleased with the race, a massive PB and sub 1 h 40! It was hard going in the wind, so I am even more pleased with myself. Well done all who raced today, nice to see RT, HOD and Bananaman at the finish. 43rd Female, 24th in class/99.
Bob!
I want to go for a PB, but it's the morning after my Works 'Christmas do'! <p>

I need to do a 1.46.20 to equal the points I scored at Witham 5 on Boxing Day, That would be going some!, <p>

Just taken a look, that means I's have to do 8.07minute miles which is the same as my 10 mile PB <br>
P'raps not that fast then! <br>

UPDATE 30/1 <br>
Had my fastest ever sub 70% WHR Run today. Have decided to have a go a 8.20 miling on Sunday, hence the new improved prediction of 1.49.10 <p>

RACE UPDATE <p>

YES!!! <p>

A PB by over 6 minutes, Official time is 1.47.32
Ultra Kanga Kazzaaaaah!!
More enjoyable than expected given the pummelling by that wind!! After taking it out quick over the first 8.5 miles I decided to err on the side of caution and take it easy over the last few miles.
CanaryYellow
3 weeks after a marathon. Ran 2:05:11 but got muddled up in the finish funnel and so my official time is over a minute slower.
Tom Tom
Please note-this is my watch time, not the official one (still waiting). Shouldn't be too far out though. Some tough bits in the race with that bloody wind, but a bit more sheltered than I thought it would be. As usual , great support from the marshalls all the way round, and plenty of hot tea and nosh at the village hall. Didn't like having to finish on the grass-felt like wading through treacle-but chuffed to bits with my spanky new pb! :) :) :)
GettingThere
A great race with a pb by 2 mins 16 secs - given the conditions very pleased. Another well organised GBRC event
Wabo
just doing this for the fun, no marathons planned this year.
not pb but I am reasonably happy with my time, 3rd fastest half for me
Hills of Death (HOD)
Not running great at the mo need to rest and recover. See previous comment another poor run I think I'm overtraining despite two days rest before my legs felt stiff and heavy at start. Vicksta had great run I was aim to do a time similar to her but legs wouldn't let me. I felt very fresh at end (apart from legs) :(
HellsBells
well pleased - even if my garmin did measure it at 13.22!
well done Great bentley - a brilliant race
DrBob
This is a good quick race, should be on form for a PB by a couple of minutes
Bananaman
Did not want to come out of the hall, it was so cooooold. Not cold at all once we got going though. Great race, well organised and a big PB for me :)
Babbit
Time now official, was only 1 second out with watch.

Race very windy.

Lost my water bottle so a bit dehydrated. Made it very hard going. So extra pleased to take 7 mins off previous pb.
automatic shoes
Thankfully the cold, bitter wind I experienced when walking from the car did not feel so bad once the race got underway. Despite the fact that I was treating this as a marathon training run and ran it at that pace, I still found getting round harder than I expected. But the main target, getting some more miles in my legs, was achieved.
SUPERWOMAN63
My 2nd time back at this event, today the weather was cold and windy .All l wanted to do was test my fitness and see if my hamstring was going to hold up. I had a very enjoyable run felt so much better than l expected and l enjoyed running with a small group most of the route , which makes a nice change for me as l do all of my training and running on my own. a GREAT race in GREAT BENTLEY nice medal too.
OllyW
Cold and windy.
Blazer
