This event is listed on these dates:
Had a good start, then struggled after 1st KM, and lost a lot of ground. Managed to get back into it on the second half even though the hills were tougher, and finished strongly- last 2K 3.34 & 3.31.
The Belly Is Gaun Tae Get Ye
Season best but worst time on this course but not near where I need to be falling away early in race.
Felt the effects of Sundays' race.
Just did not feel up for this one,probably over raced in the last few weeks.
I was 1st female - very pleased with that! Have never won a race before. Got a great PB too. Well organised race, very clear distance markers and a nice route. Homemade cakes and biccies at the end was a nice touch too.
Lead from 1st k mark & held that to the finish to record seasons best time.Ran even splits of 16:10 & 16:12.
Was surprised to be running that time as i thought i wasnt near PB shape but ended up just 4 secs outside my PB.Got £50.Thats my 3rd Ayrshire victory this summer.Well chuffed.
Great also to see connelld getting a well deserved PB.gokeith taking 2nd place comfortabley.hannkies getting back onto the road.
Irvine are like Kilmarnock when holding races.Always efficent/well marshalled & great camaradrie.
course best time,went through sticky patch from 4k to 6k lost a bit of ground on the guys in 3rd+4th position then managed to get back into stride,closed down on 4th place at 8k,caught 3rd place just before 9k then moved into 2nd place with about 800m to go.Good feeling to chase down and pass runners at the end.Team prize with Scott,James and John C into the bargain.Pb for Cd and loads more prizes for other Killie runners so another good nights work all round for team Killie
I really enjoyed the race last night. Set off hard and got to 5k in 18.51. Worked hard on the way back in 19.09. Slightly disappointed not to get under 38mins but 38.00 will do!! I reckon it took me at least a second to go over the line at the start!!
Bit disappointed with my race if I'm honest. 1st K was a bit fast but not drastically so, every K till halfway was slower than the previous one, but from 5 - 10 K I got each one faster than the previous one. Strange. Isolated from the first mile, no-one passed me, and I picked up a place. In hindsight deffo should have bit the bullet and went with the wee group in front as I'm sure I'd have been a fair bit faster but didn't so it's not an issue. Top top runs by SBA, and clubmates GoKeith, Connell, James, Les and Kara amongst others. Finished 8th of 162 in an as usual excellently organised race.
I recently did the "Irvine 10k" I recorded a time of 36:04 and the funny thing was that I beat my PB time for a 10k by 2 Seconds!!! So im improving all the time!
The Course was fairly flat with a Incline at the Start of the Race in Warm conditions. My fellow team-mate from RHC Kerry Wilson won this Race.
I wanted to race at average 6 minute miles. Started faster than I wanted to and had a couple of poorer Km's near end. However, I achieved my target and knocked 1.27 of my PB. A first for Sunbed Athlete, 2nd for gokeith and team prize for Killie Guys and Girls. Great Course and Great atmosphere.
