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?

Not a PB course for me, so I'm setting my target is to beat last years time (47.54) #307

I beat last years time ok but the windy conditions made it hard going...uphill and into a head wind at 7km cost me a bit of time.
Good to see Oxforded at the end,looks like he clocked a resonable time all things considered
little brown bag
Would love a sub 50 time tomorrow.. but it's hilly!
Little bruv is running too, looking for 48 Minutes, so will try sticking with him

ANd it was very windy too.. Ian did 53.23 so wasn't far behind. Bit disappointed, but will try a flat course in a couple of months to see the difference.
Not a good race. Woke up after an awful night's sleep feeling pretty rough. Thought I was going to vomit at some point, but didn't. Goring 10k was hilly and windy. I'm sure the hills have got bigger? Around 5k I found a bit more pace on the long flat section toward the slow uphill climb, but then after the turn back toward Goring, the wind was bad around 7k, and the uphill made it tough going.

Splits started OK, soon went downhill to mid and late 4min/km so it was clear I wasn't hitting the targets. I'm disappointed I didn't get sub 40 but I knew when I was at the start I wasn't feeling right. Ho hum. Maybe next time.

Nice to meet some fetchies (Amadeus, two people from Derby(!!) and a few others). I was the only one in a Fetch shirt though!
Wow that was hard - much hillier than i expected, someone had told me the hills were only at the start! Really pleased with my time considering
