Slowly But Shirley
Guess I should never try and race 2 x 5ks in 2 consecutive evenings! Lost precious seconds having to re-tie my shoelaces once I got underway and starting somewhere near the back, so that didn't help either! Next year I'll start a bit further up and ensure my laces are tighter!!
I love this 5k ... flat with some slight downhill slopes ... what's not to love?! Friendly marshalls too.
jangles
Have never run a 5k other than RFL with my daughter. I've put in a fairly conservative prediction but I'd LIKE to make it round in about 23/24 minutes...would anyone be prepared to pace me?
Lumsdoni
Entered - It's a fast course so considering current training it's a good chance of a PB.
Ruggy
looking for a new PB here this year !! ( It will be a close call!)

Sorry to all who bet on me didn't quite do it on Friday :(
a.k.a Billy
Looking forward to this.......Update - PB so delighted. Good race this anyway and always a great fetchie turnout
Mr BDR
Official results in, I managed the PB I was after and got under 20 mins!
Very pleased with that little outing!
icemaiden
First 5K race - should get round in under 30 mins. :-)

Garmin time from start line to finish line 29:31, official time probably about 10 secs slower.
Chaz
Looks quick - Lets hope I\'m up for it. Update: I am. Will be a sub 18 attempt.
BDR
Would love a PB here...
Schnecke
PB here last year - can I do it again? Will have more idea nearer the time. Did it - not by much but I did it! Time is from my stopwatch, as was last year's as this isn't chip timed.
Lieutenant Lucerne
Watch time. Ran the first km a bit faster than planned, followed by two slower kms, before picking up the pace again (and even a slight 'sprint' over the last 100m).
GrahH
..by my watch. Official time 23:43. I'm sticking with my watch.. we didn't even move when the start sounded!
Lycra Hurricane
Pb by 2 seconds! Pleased with that, with the twinges.
hammerite
had a nightmare!
bjworld
have put my watch time as it took quite a few seconds to cross the start line
No.8 ™
Nice tempo run on the back of a heavy week
starfleet1985
Good race,
Stotty
Watch time - 7 secs off start line. Actually quite shocked to have got under 25 mins. The rehabilitation continues....I'll have to wait until next year for a new PB...
Slow Going
bugrit. I shall focus on the first 2.5km where I felt great and strong, rather than the remainder where I felt knackered and desperate for somewhere to throw up :)
running ade
First Race! Went really well. Entered with only the aim of finishing it. Did it in under 30 minutes, so I was pleased.
Wanoah
Hoping to maybe make this my first ever 5K.
