This event is listed on these dates:
If it's hot no chance of a pb
If it's not then it's a 50/50
Going to try to knock at least a minute off my first effort.
Ultra Kanga Kazzaaaaah!!
Rubbish weather. Fab race. Superb course. Nowhere near as slow as I feared. Now to defrost!!!
Big race,loads of bods.Possibilities of getting stuck.....high.But looking forward to running through London,hope the asthma doesn't play up.
Really sorry bettors - got to the start late and the crowds were too thick for the first 4-5k. Went through 2k in 12.30 rather than planned 8.00 and was never able to make it up. That was frustrating but otherwise the event was great - really good marshals etc despite the weather.
More speedwork required.
I was hoping to chase a PB at this event, something I've never trained 'seriously' for but aim to dip under 45min. The nearest I got to rediscovering my teenage 10k form was in 1999 when I managed 45.54 at the Perth 2 inches 10k. Speed just isn't there but the weight is starting to come off, always a good sign. Maybe later in the year !!!
Well, it was a nice course, but shame about the weather! I'm sure there would have been more support if the weather had been better - but what there was was good Shame that I felt awful the whole way round. I really struggled to finish this, so I'm glad I got round in less than 70 minutes - even though the original target was 60... it'll come, I'm sure - but sorry to those who bet on me
Hoping to make this a sub 40min new PB
1460th / 195th in my category
Looking for a steady 9:30 mile pace for this to bring me in under the 60 minute mark.
*EDIT* Coo what a wet day! Still a good romp around London with lots of other Fetchies. Quite pleased that my 10k pace is almost the same as my 5k pace. Think that I'm going to have to stop being a slacker and up the speed on my intervals.
Enjoyed the race dispite the weather,started at the back of the red zone this cost me a good time, the first two km were my slowest.
will do again nice course, PB, crowding not too bad , shame about the biblical weather
first race after long injury will be pleased to get round.
looking forward too it,running round the streets of london traffic free
still not fully fit but got round in pouring rain
What a great course, but what a pity you could just make out those landmarks through veils of rain - it only let up for a few minutes in the first half of the race. It was OK to run in, though worse for the marshalls and the people at drinks stations and giving out goody bags - so thanks to all of you. Had to retie laces three times in this one - they must have been Freudian laces. This is an event for next year too, I think.
Fairly biblical weather. Smooth start, 1st half harder than 2nd because of wind but lost focus around the city. A PB, but disappointed not to dip under 38 minutes. Dead even 5k splits.
So much better than the British 10k...
Terrible weather for this first central London 10k race from FLM/Nova but despite long lay off since FLM I managed to run an evenly paced approx 4'30.0 per km and with a sprint to finish down The Mall. Checked the results website and 1st 5k in 22'38 and 22'02 to finish (wind assisted on the return I think!)... Position overall 398th.... feel pretty good about that now.
Oh my!! A new PB....... thanks to DIYDiva and her pacing! Now a sub 50 is on the cards!!!
Oh and this may have been WET!!!
Weather was awful - wet, windy and cold. Who knew this was my perfect running weather? PB by over 2 mins!!!
1st charity fund raising run - am really looking forward to this

Ran this with Emma, at her pace. She did fantastically well.
Very wet and windy but good coarse and ran as well as i oul very pleased withmy time today.
Reading through other comments I realise I was very lucky to be in the first wave, so the crowding wasn't an issue. Didn't expect to get a pb with the number of people and the weather, so am well chuffed!
Really good organisation, medal nice too.
Shocking weather but an equally shocking performance! My knee held up, my shins gave me no problems at all and I set a personal best! I can't quite believe it.
Travelling down from Dundee the day before. Anyone recommend anywhere nice for us to go for eats? Staying in Kings Cross...blimey. Would love to break the 60 minute barrier but will enjoy the occasion no matter what. UPDATE: Utter crap. Weather was dreadful and I was soaked through even before we started. I thought I ran better than I had done of late but the figures say otherwise. Only ray of sunshine was meeting Battlecat at the start line! Sorry for not making the drinks at Yate's..I was cold, wet and miserable and just wanted to be on my train home. Not one I want to do again.x
Been told I have to do it in one hour.
Didn't do as I was told. Nightmare has to pee at 1st stop and wait for ages. Messed up the time. Well done Aunty T for running on your own and beating me by miles.
Not my fastest, but glad I got under the hour, given the atrocious weather
I should be up to this? even below par I really should be ok, bet on myself
Have to say with the way I have been running lately, I am happy with todays run. gramin said 6.39 as well
poured with rain v congested 1st 5 km
First 10k - first race! Eeep...
was pacing cousin to 10mm
163rd woman, 21st in my age category!!!
My first 10K - aaggh!!!
Gonna jog it leisurely like with my OH
I'm over the moon with this race as I thought it was top-notch all around despite the atrocious weather conditions. Hope they do it again next year.
Overall race position was 2132 and I managed a sprint finish and achieved my first ever negative split - well happy!
Wet wet wet
Picked up a calf injury on Friday and ran this race on the Monday.
Great race, but oh so very wet. Good organisation, good to meet Fetchies, only 30 seconds outside PB wearing no watch, no garmin, nothing. Did not want to!
I enjoyed my little self anyway. Yates was good afterwards. Coffee was much needed!!
I have felt lousy all week with a really bad cold and only started feeling brighter on saturday afternoon. Still wasn't sure if l was going to run this as hadn't run for several days. BUT l did and throughly enjoyed this run and so glad l got around the course. The weather was absolutely atrocious from start to finish, the marshalls were very supportive and the race was well organised .
Still Drunk from night before and pouring with rain!!!!!
A litle more running and a little less walking. Groin still very slowly improving, but know got pain on top of knee, think its all stress related to injury. Will rest now for 4 days!
Sooooo wet - soooooo cold!
Ran with Nige most of the way through the torrential rain and blowing gales. We were hanging around in the freezing cold rain for a good hour before hand, just getting colder. On a sunny day this would have been wondeful -great course, but in this weather it was just terrible. 'never really got going; thank good ness for Nigel's black bin bag it was the only thing standing between me and pneumonia. Worst time I have probably ever done for a 10K, but also about 20 years since my last one!
Bloody wet, but a good race. Will do it again
Chucked it down!
Still pissed from night in Covent Garden's Punch & Judy
