This event is listed on these dates:

\J\
Slightly longer course this year..
Tino
They've gone and added 0.2 miles to the course!! UPDATE - Not a bad effort, good first 3 miles slowed a bit after that but overall a decent time.
Scooba Steve
Found this hard going, only ran once in last 9 weeks so that was to be expected, nothing better than a crappy ime to kickstart some proper training!
Black Cat
Missed out last year so looking forward to the trek down Scotswood Road again!
bigal
did no training for this as way too busy at the minute,so ran it as a funrun with a good friend.Made a nice change to run for enjoyment without chasing a time. Enjoyed the changes to the course as added a bit variety to usual course.
Beejay
Running but not racing.......under 50 mins should be about right.

Race went ok, course was flattish but was ran into the wind :(
Lisrun
Great atmosphere at this one. An alteration to the course this year which changes the length from 5.7m to 5.9m *Update* Crowded start, bit of a headwind and warm. Slightly disappointed with my time, but its probably good that I didn't push too hard as I have a long race on Saturday
Raisty Raist
just jogging round as been doiny very little training due to one reason or another
Vicki: Graceless Whippet
Pretty hot out there, but had a canny run. Even somehow managed to beat last years time (43:15) on what was a longer course - supposedly 5.9 but several folks had 6+ miles on their garmins. Will have to see what my official time was as I forgot to press start on mine, so just checked on the clock above the finish as I went under it. Great to meet up with various club mates & forumites
batmouse
Hope I get a place. Always fancied running it but not had the nerve. I dunno why I thought I'd do it in 50 mins what was I thinking???? I was obviously under the influence of alcohol when I thought 50 mins. Good run. Thanks Morgs.
Big Hag
A Canny run and I was faster than last year.
RununMan
Went off too fast and blew up badly last year - hope to run better this time!!! UPDATE: Great atmosphere in the bigg market pre race. It's seems everyone turns out for this one. I ran okay upto 4m then legs just locked up, i struggled but just tried to keep it going to the end. I've decided im either rubbish at this race or it's just too close to Edin Marathon!!
Miss Sweden
Right. Going to try and get in in 50 mins in this. Not sure if I can do it, but will give it a go.
Did it in 51 mins but seeing as the b*****ds made it longer and added in an extra hill, I'm pretty pleased with this.
Grey Badger
First time i've done this one. Leg sore from saturdays fell race so just have to see how it goes. UPDATE----- leg held up fine, super event ,4000 runners. I had to start way back as i'm not in a running club so it took 40sec to get to the start line then walked for quite a bit before getting running. Once i got started i ran well with no pain from leg, passed lots of people. Time i have put down is my time from the start line to the finish line not the gun time which was 37m 30sec. Very well organised event with a great tee shirt and goodie bag. PS route came back as 6.06 on my Garmin anyone else find this?
dasco89
Delighted with unofficial time. Hope official time is about the same as it was a bit chaotic at the finish.
RobK
Really enjoyed this race. Great atmosphere at the start.. yep a little crowded but it was ace.. excellent route. Yep my Garmin recorded a distance of 6.07 so I was very happy with MY time of 44:24. Well done to organisers. That bottle of Dog in the goodie bag really hit the spot at the finish.
Coulson
Slightly longer route this year but what the hell, Coolybops is going for a PB here! Bring it on!
Ands
Warm, headwind, and disliked the contraflow loop, seemed to loose pace along there. Was hoping fo 45-46mins, but about a minute slower than planned. Great atomosphere as usual.
Wee Col
Didn't realise that they had made the course a bit longer when I made my prediction (that's my excuse!). Crossed the line in 50:03, so reasonably happy with that. Cracking event though - well done to Bob Houston and the Blaydon Harriers team for organising this.
ed.knud
started way too far back, but being my first time i'll just make sure i don't make the same mistake again! Though was catching and passing people all the way from the start until right up to the finish
Deejay
Had a bit of a cold coming on (full of snot today), so happy enough with this, my unoffiical time
Skylonsthelimit
Dunno what went wrong....
alisterrobson
899th of 3435 finishers, chuffed to bits!
Cat the Dog Lover
Start line to finish time. Official time more like 54 mins. Not a good run for me in any respect. Left me feeling very miserable.
suziedee
Although the race organisers said this was 5.7 miles my Garmin made it just over 6 miles one of us has to be wrong and I don't think it is Garmin as a number of others I've spoken to also said that they got 6miles on their Garmin
