Marcus I was aiming for 30:30 and without the awful headwind on the uphill straits I might have sneaked it (sub-30 pace for the first 3 miles and finished fresh)- on the other hand it was a good PB and as usual a very enjoyable race with such a high-quality field. Had an 11-mile warm-down back to Middlewich afterwards with a tail-wind so all in all a very enjoyable day! Especially with victories in the Men's Vets Team, Ladies' Vets Team, Ladies' individual race for the club. Vale Royal AC, Fell Runners Association 30:53 30:53 30:30 30:53 73.64

MrsJJ Start a bit chaotic again and very difficult to move through the field,not too disappointed with time as started near the back and had strong wind against us most of the time Wrekin Road Runners 39:28 42:54 42:54 57.50
My poor knees... Was soooo cold and windy that at 2 miles I wanted to gve up!!!! am glad I didn't as I am well pleased with my time (Garmin time).
Was a nice course and well marshalled;would do it again.
Just one point:was the 3 mile marker missing or was I too quick and missed it!!!???
;-)

parkbench Started too far down the field and lost time threading through the pack. Quite windy and cold. Not much rain, just some light drizzle now and again. Sprint finish, which enabled me to break 38 minutes. Unaffiliated 35:45 37:57 38:00 37:57 59.93
quimby Very pleased with my time, especially in that wind. Unaffiliated 42:32 45:57 54:25 51:40 47.45
Sandpitt Having never run this distance outside of my training, not sure what time to go for.However 35mins sounds quite testing for me at this stage. UPDATE: Very happy to run quicker than I thought despite the strong winds. Pleased with the time despite missing the 2 and 3 mile markers(if they existed?). Spectrum Striders RC 32:17 32:17 34:00 32:45 66.20
Siggers Managed to get another PB, it felt like the wind was in my face for 4 out of the 5 miles, and it was very blustery so I am pleased with the time, if it had been a calm day I am fairly confident that I would have gone under 36 minutes, still I'll save that for another 5 miler. North Staffs Road Runners 30:32 36:28 36:00 36:28 60.99
Skittering Monstrosity Hoping to do around 44 minutes, but worried how long it will take to get started with that number of runners! At least it looks like it won't be snowing.
Afterwards:
The start was fine, but my time was a bit slower than I'd hoped. I guess abject terror and 20 mph gusts of wind took their toll! A great race however. North Staffs Road Runners 44:41 44:41 44:00 44:41 56.49
SteveV Was hoping for under 35 but with a break in training for a few weeks will be lucky to get anything under 38 mins

*update* very pleased with time Unaffiliated 28:49 36:04 38:00 36:04 59.15

WeV Thought I set off too fast but it was perfect - shin splints most of the way round but forgot about them after 3 miles.  Strong finish.  Pleased with my time. Stafford Harriers 34:14 38:39 40:00 38:39 55.33
