C-Cat hmmmm... got bit carried away with buzzin atmosphere :D ...took poorly body for little run... sunshine was lovely, wind worked against (especially on hilly bits) oh and horizontal rain for final mile was such a neat extra challenge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

climbingfishgirl Really did not enjoy this.
Things have been going well in training but I seem to loose it all on race day.
To top it off I had some kind of weird asthma-like attack after the race. Never happend before, hope it never happens again. GP is being less than helpful. Unaffiliated 1:55:44 1:56:00 1:50:00 1:56:00 57.49

eL Bee! Tough conditions!!!  The forecast 16-21 knot winds were very much in evidence and made the undulating section on the far side very challenging.  Mile splits tell the story of the wind more than anything else.
Chuffed to bits with a PB - had to work pretty hard for it though!!! Cumberland AC 1:25:32 1:25:32 1:25:32 71.22

koilowe Very windy and open, not as flat as expected either. Last lap a struggle especially as the wind seemed to get stronger and the rain started. 
Excellent organisation and very enjoyable despite the weather.
Same again next year?

*Update*
Great event and run. Lovely to meet so many lovely people.
New pb too which considering that wind was pleasing, finished 8th.

Velociraptor Has to be done :) 
What a great event! An impeccably-organised race that could almost make me love Draycote Water, lots of Fetchies, a fantastic atmosphere, cake. Loved it! 
I knew I wasn't in PB form - threw myself at sub-1:45 pace from the start but only managed to sustain it for the first half, partly due to the increasingly lively weather but mostly due to my decreasingly lively legs. I don't regret trying, though :o) Cumberland AC, FERC 1:37:44 1:46:08 1:45:00 1:46:08 65.51
