Not in the best of shape but I'll give it a go.Update: that's a tough little race. Did it two years ago and I remember that you do three laps of a nice park but that means three times up this long slow draggy incline and several tight turns around cones. There are sneaky hills thoughout as well so it qualifies as undulating. The length was 10.17 on Tig's garmin so all in all, 46.23 was a good effort and I'm quite pleased. Especially as I've been ill and slacking into the bargain. Hey, a good one.

Blimey, those U-turns made for hard work. Not really firing on all cylinders tonight - 6:47 pace, but over two minutes outside my PB time. Best bit was the social side - lots of friendly faces, meeting fetchies and good food after the race!
A PB. I'm getting closer to the elusive 40 min mark!!!!!
That was a tough course - the cones really added more time than I had anticpated. Overall I'm quite pleased with the time given the long slog up the drive (3x) and the turns at the cones. Lovely evening for a race and well organised. Good to meet up with a few Fetchies and enjoyed pacing Andy up the final straight after my warm down!
The Flying Fifer
have done this one a couple of times- in the days when I was fit. Would love to go under the hour. Anything more would be a bonus
Update-mission accomplished. measured 6.39 miles on my Garmin, which is usually about 0.1m out for a 10k, so all-in-all I reckon it was a tad on the long side.
Just taking it easy after FLM and using it as a training run in the run up to the Dunfermline 10K & Half then Edin Mara.
Good run tonight, over 2 minutes quicker than last year, but lack of training was taking it's toll over the last 2K, calf is still bothering me too(got ice on it at the mo!). Weather proved friendly in the end and I held on to take 12th place. Clubmates finished 1st & 2nd too. Very well organised event with a cracking feed afterwards - I even went up for seconds as they had stuff left Reckon the field was bigger than last year too(2007=190 finishers). Good to see a big Fetch turnout too.
Pleased with run and happy to break 40 minutes considering all the tight turns and Garmin reports about the course being a touch on the long side.
6.3 Miles on my Garmin. Quite pleased with time.
Strange course in that you almost stopped to go round the cones - 6 times I think.
Nice night for it and the sandwiches were well received after the race.
long flat race with turns
A lap course with 360 degree turns at doglegs. After 56 mins at Dunfermline last year, I thought I could do 50 mins. Hmmm. The consequencies of training alone. More intervals required! Or perhaps I need to join a club?

Good flat course and one where you get to see the rest of the field (both faster and slower runners) several times as you head up narrow lanes, turn around a wee cone at the end and then head back up the other side of the the lane. Those turns could easily knock a minute off your time (there are six in all), but it is as flat as they come.
