Alopex My first half of the year, & the venue of my half marathon debut last year.  It's flat, but busy.  I should go sub 1:40, but a lot depends on the recovery from a long training run the week before, & the game of rugby the day before.  UKnetrunner 1:37:00 1:37:00 1:39:00 1:37:05 62.59

BDR Just completed my first half today (Bedford half) and decided to enter MK half today too!!  Looking forward to a reasonably flat course and hopefully I can beat my one and only half time. Team Milton Keynes 1:57:10 2:05:00 2:04:00 2:05:00 53.12
Big Jules Ugh!  Nightmare of a race.  Completely naff.  Did well up to 7 miles, good pace etc etc then (not sure what) but lost it ... totally.  Concentration went, negativity stepped in and, the rest is history.  Worst ever half marathon time.  Gutted. Biggleswade AC 1:55:11 1:55:11 1:57:00 2:05:58 55.97
BrianJ Not really feeling right for this one, had a bad headache beforehand, but after a few miles started to feel better and decided to forget about a PB and just run it for fun. Last mile was fastest and felt fine at the end. North Herts Road Runners 2:11:44 2:14:50 2:14:00 2:17:51 49.44

CanaryYellow I have run 2 absolute stinker half marathons in MK, 3rd time lucky i guess. *RACE EDIT* Almost forgot about the bloody hump backed bridge. Thought i had set off slowly, eveidently it was sub 2 pace. Paid for that exuburance in the last 5k but pleased to have banished the Mk demon and managed a half decent run around the place.

DanG Prediction based on good FLM training and a positive outcome of Watford 4 weeks before this.  If I get the prediction here I will be feeling good about a sub 4 at London.  Good Luck to everyone in their training!!!!

Felt crap as still full of cold and had sickness yesterday.  Pleased to have finished race in one piece! Wootton Road Runners 1:39:00 1:41:28 1:45:00 1:43:38 57.26

Lieutenant Lucerne Slower than last year and a bit slower than expected; which seems to be in line with how 2008 has started for me. The fourth time I have run this and as ever the 9th mile, with its undulations was the slowest. The 10th and part of the 11th mile into the wind were hard going. The small bridge over the canal during mile 11 is always harder than it should be (I'm sure I saw a large bright green model of a dinosaur at this point).

Lycra Hurricane Generally comfortable for the whole race, although I started off too briskly and went to sleep in the middle.  As a result I was unable to attach at the end.  Repeat afer me, it was training for the marathon... Bedford Harriers AC, Rushden Runners 1:48:52 1:49:22 1:48:30 1:49:22 62.86
Martyn Fisher Would like to go under 1:45. In fact, I'd like to go under 1:43 and get a PB, but that's unlikely. I'll do my best.

Post Race - good time, given I've had flu for most of the last two weeks, but would have preferred sub 1:45. Going well until 8 miles, then died a bit. Capable of better. Almost Athletes 1:42:07 1:44:34 1:44:00 1:45:32 59.90
Mattw4de if i take off the 25 seconds to 1h37 i will be happy, anything quicker is fantastic but not required..

Well So much for my theory, I blitzed it - Had loads left at end & got a bit bored of the change of direction & all those bridge underpass' Really didn't like that Hump Back Bridge or the Bridge over the Main Road. Paths were a bit narrow at times when snaking through Housing estates & proved challenging to overtake. All together an enjoyable day, great spectator support along all the route also..

Perhaps there is something to this  Unaffiliated 1:39:33 1:41:09 1:42:44 63.06
Turkhish Apart from running into a bollard after about 3 miles and making myself look like a real clown I was glad to finish and struggled quite badly after 15k - although i did set off far too quickly and paced myself quite poorly! Unaffiliated 1:44:22 1:48:00 1:50:00 1:54:34 56.54
