Cluaran Enjoyed the run, and the course. Thought I paced myself pretty well up to the half way mark, but the Balmoral 10K from last Saturday was still in my legs and I struggled to maintain my target pace much past the 6k mark. Edinburgh Running Network 46:54 1:00:45 58:00 1:02:05 46.44

IanS Not a PB course plus I'm doing the Black Rock 5 on the Friday night :-)  Update: Might just have sneaked a PB if my Garmin time is right (just missed my 5K PB time in the first half too...) Course read slightly long (10.15km) and the usual hills were there so pretty happy all round with my time even if it isn't a PB. Bit of a Fetch fest at the end meeting up with Ducksdisease, Wee Col and TigerLily as well as Ellem, Tigger and Dyslexik! Update2: Official time of 46:26 - PB by 3 seconds woohoo :-) Harmeny AC 42:58 43:49 48:30 46:26 62.09

katypie Humid, hungover and a week after a marathon.  Not a bad effort considering.  I must be weird cos I LOVED the section by Arthurs Seat.  LOL Unaffiliated 45:12 52:50 50:00 52:50 57.41

Maverick69 Went out fairly fast averaging 5.5mins per mile, struggled from Holyrood park climb. More hilly than I thought it would be. Unaffiliated 45:24 49:54 47:00 49:54 55.15
McNewbie like many others, first 5km or so was fine, great stuff, it was the damn hill that got me too (hilll, slope, potayto, potahto). nearly became one of the dropping flies, reluctantly walked for a bit to ensure i ended the race, having travelled so far and trained for so long. my first 10km, hoped it would rain as predicted, annoyingly hotter than expected; but great crowds and atmosphere, beautiful city to do a race in.

pmethven My first ever run, appart from some lack luster training, so I'm really happy to have come in under 1 Hour. My initial prediction was way out, based on mixing up miles and KMs and not really having a clue about how long it will take. :-) Unaffiliated 46:17 46:17 2:00:00 56:50 47.01

RobK Really looking forward to this race. Absolutely adore Edinburgh and to have a run around the city on a Sunday morning will be marvellous.

Race over... ah well.. not a pb course. There were about three hills in that race :-( . Had a great day and the event was really well organised. Tyne Bridge Harriers 39:26 46:04 49:50 50:30 55.30
robroy really good race with good atmosphere before and after and good organisation throughout. I used a pace band and tried for 48 mins. At times I was ahead of times but the big hill in Holyrood park slowed me down a bit. However, I was still very pleased with my time. the weather kpet god and we were able to sit down in meadows and have our lunch. Overall a great day.

SpicedApple My first race ever. Very well organised, especially with the wave-start. Had my sister over who had never been to Edinburgh before, so we used this as an opportunity for a special kind of sightseeing. Chatting away, pointing out landmarks and racking my brain for knowledge on local history certainly made it a lot easier, especially during the more hilly bits. Really enjoyed this race and the atmosphere in the Meadows - this is what got me into running. jogscotland, Musselburgh & District Athletic Club 48:17 52:01 1:00:02 50.53

Tigerlily Those bloody hills!  Never going back to Edinburgh again, not even for the shops.  Started off fine then lost the will to live at 5k when the long stretch of Queens Drive was upon me.  By that time the coupon was burst.  Only way I will break the 60 minute barrier is on a scooter! Unaffiliated 55:00 1:01:30 1:10:00 1:06:24 46.53
