This event is listed on these dates:

Vin Rouge
good run - ran own pace
AdrianR
A very pleasant day. Pleased with the result although it was 3 minutes outside last year's time.
Hackett
My first HM so want to finish in a decent clip and not be to Knackered at the finish ... Hoping to be around 1hr 35 but coming down with cold - I shall be sponsored by Lemsip !!!!
Lizzie W
Lovely pacing by Treacle :-) Evil course :-(
Ultracat
a bit colder than expected, busy and congested first couple of miles. Alot of flat and sort of welcomed the few inclines we got the last 3 miles to get a change of pace.
bagpuss
Well organised this year - they seem to be getting their act into gear - finally.
Thought i might get to around 1:50 but faded in the last 3 miles again and it was a particularly hard last 2. nearly passed out at the finish. Lightweight.
Lyndylou
DNF :( Pulled out at 9 miles as my back and hamstring were killing me. Going to have to rethink FLM - to do or not to do?????
paulhiles
Was going pretty well for the first half. Then had two slow miles (9 and 10), due mostly to fatigue and the moderate inclines. Ended up finishing just outside of my target time, but still a PB so I can't complain. Well organised run, seems to get better each year.
Whippet123
Could have cried for those 11 seconds!!! So near and yet so far. Stonking race though.
CornishEva
was aiming for under 8.40 pace, which I thought I had, but garmin measured that I ran 13.25 miles, so missed my goal. Nevermind.
SherryB
My first HM. I ran for charity: The Brompton Fountain - in aid of Buzzard's Sis whose son Will has received treatment here. Sponsor me at: http://www.justgiving.com/sherryb. Great pacing by Treacle. Last mile was hard. Chip time.
Roobarb
Lack of training means this is probably not going to be a pb :(
SuzyWoo
A PB, but felt awful nearly the whole way round, didn't really enjoy this race, and was surprised to find my Garmin time was 8 secs faster than my chip time - how did that happen???
Prof Disco Dean
hopefully pb? lets see what happen's at bramley#update not what i was hoping after bramley. bad knee caused me to take it easy for last three sorry if you had a bet on me.
B
Wasn't sure I'd be running today as I didn't feel well beforehand. Started off well but began to feel nauseous at 7 miles and went through a bad patch up to 11 miles. Even walked a bit. Disappointed really.
bootsie
great run.. really comfortable the whole way around!
ninjaman
Going well til 8-9 miles but not done enough miles to carry it through til the end. Still all in all very pleased. The Evening Star's an excellent pub too - where we met Graham from http://www.teignbridgetrotters.co.uk/. Hi there Graham...

genegenie
How bad are the hills on this one...?
Dougie.
Last three miles were grim but very pleased with the result - shows training is going well.
Kitbag
I had pulled my left calf muscle on the Wednesday before the race and was very concerned that I wouldn't be able to finish the race. On Saturday I went out for a very slow 1.8M run and was aware of a weakness. I used compression socks and a heal lift in my left shoe. I started out slow with a 9:30, then 9:09 and progressively quicker, with some miles around 8:30 to 8:40. At 11 miles the hills were over and I new the rest was totally flat. I shifted up a gear and ran the last couple of miles at 8:00min/mile pace. I was please with a new PB. I think that a 1:50 may be a little on the ambitious side as a per FLM half target.
Sporran
Second half marathon, training going well, hope to go sub 2 hours again, a pb may be possible but not probable :-)
Fast Eddie
PB! :)
Mr Woo
Damn hard going, made harder on myself for pressing the lap rather than start buttton on my garmin, so didn't know time for 1st mile - Doh!!!
Very pleased with my time and SW's, great performance's!!!
grinlee
Best half so far, must do this one again
Ginger N
Treating as a marathon paced training run
Smileygirlie
not my best day... but not as bad as it could've been!!
Treacle
Got lizzie the sooper dooper PB and Sherry a great first HM time and went under predicted time:-)
mmp
brilliant race, lovely weather, bit fiddly and bottlenecks at the end when you're feeling a bit knackered, but other than that, genius. no medals tho :(
Rock Steady
Wrong shoe selection I think, run ok for about 8 or 9 miles then I could not go any faster.
Mr UE
been injured for best part of three months, so just hoping to get around in quicker than 2006 half in barns green, really treating this as warm up. BUT 1hr 45 would be cool!

so with above in mind, and stiffness for first 3 miles I was absolutely chuffed to nail it with a 1.39.....nice and steady mile times as well.....and the post race harveys was perfect...oh and the chianti is pretty good now too.
Keefy Beefy
Just did this as a training so as not to waste another race entry. Went pretty well - main concern was my recently injured calf. Seems to be as none of the trademark throbbing or tighness happened. A pretty good race, all in all. Not spectacular and a bit monotonous in places, but certainly nothing wrong with it. Splits were 7:24 - 8:09 - 7:57 - 8:08 - 7:42 - 7:35 - 7:35 - 7:23 - 7:58 - 7:04 - 7:27 - 7:30 - 7:35 (for the final 1.1M).
Lottie140
Great run, was feeling good up to 10 miles then had the climb from Palace Pier out along Madeira Drive then down onto promenade and back out to Ovingdean. Some short little climbs that sapped the legs
ninder billing
Had a few drinks night before to celebrate Tara's birthday and slept on her futon. Ran conservatively for first 9 miles, remembering the gentle slope towards the end from my previous attempt. Then pushed hard for 2 miles passing what seemed like hundreds of runners. Ran out of steam slightly for the last 3/4 of a mile and was overtaken by some runners. Felt good and pleased to knock 20 minutes off my PB.
Snitch T
Talked into entering at the last minute, ran on Ian Smith's number 2249 Tut tut.
