This event is listed on these dates:
Official time, 20:54, unofficial time, 20:40 as started in "intermediate" section. 4th lady, just behind third ( I spent the entire race running past people to make up for lost time, and I spied her at 3K about 300m ahead of me due to her pink top, I was 1-2 seconds behind at finish line).
Otherwise, I surprised myself- I had a bad stomach all night and in the morning and slowed my run down deliberately than what I could have done, as knew I was on course for PB and can't not be anything but pleased with that time (would have been more pleased if chip time!) as I've only been running since June and no where near the mileage/intensity I should be at!
Great weather, great race, good marshalling, clear distance markers (including every 0.5 km) and good support in the final stretch. As it's a growing race though, I think they should make it clearer to people where to line up for safety issues. I heard someone say that they thought that the slower runners should line up near the front and so followed Rupert Bear to reach the front when he weaved through the crowd. A good fun run nonetheless- it made me smile to see a couple holding hands as they ran together.
Nice fast run
