This event is listed on these dates:
Updated with official time. I managed to take just under a minute off my previous personal best despite an unscheduled toilet break at 2km on the Embankment.
I am really pleased with my time. I knew I wasn't going to do better than a PB. My goal was to get around without the my hamstring stopping me. And I achieved my goal! My hamstring was alright all the way round the course. The one and only time I actually felt any little niggle was doing a 90degree turn towards the horse guards after the 9k mark.
The weather was much better this year which made the course much more enjoyable. I loved coming around to the corner to see St. Pauls Cathedral. Loved running up towards trafalgar square. Loved running down the Mall. Loved starting at Buckingham Palace.
I am sure the weather will be better than last year !!! Have strained my back pushing a shopping trolley !!! once it's better l will get ready for this run , yeah yeah Bring it on.
Okay l done a very lacklustre 4 miles yesterday, lets not even talk about how long they took to do !!!
I AM NOT A QUITTER, I AM NOT A..........I AM NOT..........
Slowly But Shirley
My last race before Edinburgh Marathon
I'm quite scared by the thought of a 10K, not sure how this will go.
Have had a knee injury for the past couple of months so I will be run/walking this just to get the medal and goody bag, and enjoy the lovely scenery!
yeah PB! and it was fantastically organised and managed. Marshall's were very efficient and (I guess) the odd fetchie was amongst them.
Going to work hard for a PB on this one
anything under 45mins for me
First 10k in almost 10 years...last one was Frimley 10k in Oct 1999...where I did 1:03:52 or thereabouts. I would like under an hour if possible! See race report in blog. Sub 1 was out when I temporarily destroyed knee in February after the snow went away and couldn't run for 2 months.
Will prob 'end up' walking this one... still have arm in cast and knee is 'odd' (medical description) but persuaded my house mate ot do it so I have to try!
Official time - was 5th in M45 age group and 42 overall
I'm looking forward to this. Just like the London Marathon, but without the wall.
Well pleased another Pb. Sixth in age group.
My 1st 10k. Great conditions. following a VERY hot FLM nice to race on a cool day. Was going for 57m would have been happy with anything under 59:59 so well pleased with 55m. Great course, would recomend and will do it again.
the start was too slow, too many people.... I would like to run the race in 58 minutes next year
Perfect conditions - not too hot or sunny, few drops of rain early on. I had a cold and wasn't feeling great, had to slow down at 7k, but really enjoyed the crowds, the music and the scenery. Great goody bag too!
Not racing it as Edinburgh marathon on Sunday.
Really hard to slow down in a race!
Just had to pull out of the London marathon due to acute pancreatitis so not looking for a PB. Just easing back in!
part of Edinburgh Marathon training plan. Just got over cold, and also have a tight hamstring so took it really easy. Was surprised to see average pace below 9min / mile as was really running easy and withing myself
It cannot possibly rain anymore than last year! Was my fave 10K of last year tho
Another new shiny PB!! Oh and I went through 5 miles faster than 2 weeks ago so I can do that quicker too! Was a great run. Race very well organised. Route is magic especially through Ledenhall Market, past St Pauls, Mansion House.... totally PB-Tastic! Official time 3 secs quicker than Garmin!
Saw One Ronaldo, Ragged Sporran, DIYDiva, BCRB and Gymfreak. Was a good day to be running... no monsoon rain, sun stayed hidden behind light cloud...
Very crowded run
Ran well for first 7K and then started to struggle. Still a PB, but may have been worse actual performance than Edinburgh, 3 weeks before. It is possible that standing, jumping and drinking in pub watching Rangers win the league on the afternoon before may have caused some extra fatigue.
The course was excellent and was really well organised. Good atmosphere and the weather got it just about right.
great day, great race. much fun
really looking forward to this one. its u and me this time dick!!
update- loved it!!!( mind u garmin had it at 6.4?? )and 31st lady home-not bad for an oldie!
Muggy and dusty in the big smoke...
Not bad esp after Wokingham Half. Must be in with a shout of fastest NUN - 1st time in full fancy dress for a 10 Km - bring on the habbit jokes!!!
Wouldn't mind breaking my pb....!! Think it depends how busy the course is.
......(after the race)....
Great race! Lovely organisation, but spending all of the day before stripping wallpaper is not great race preparation. 30 secs or so outside my pb, bit annoyed but I'll just have to beat it another time!
Through 5k in 26:28. Some form returning
My first ever race!!! Ran all the way... I'm going to keep wearing my medal :D
My Garmin says I did 10km in 39m30s. The only thing is that the finish line was still 200m away at that point. No excuses - still a good, fast time and if I lose a bit more weight I'll be flying. I have a month until my club 10km race.
NO training for 4 weeks before-hand, plus 4 days in bed with man-flu, yet I still got out and out in a 46 minute run. Chuffed with myself, even if a bit stupid !!
Did the very first one last year. Very good course. A good way to get the feel of the FLM without running 26miles! .Well organised and good atmosphere so worth the money. It will be my annual event. Had he remains of a flu while running so could not get a BP
The funky monkey
Poor result due to the need for a comfort break at 2k!!. Had to wait for 6 mins!
Also, climbed scaffell Pike the day before, excuses i know, must do better next time.
Unofficial time. HeartRate through the roof. Averaged 199! that's not good, thought I was going to have a heart attack at mile five. Still, very pleased with the PB. I know I can go quicker too as I'd only done 43 miles since 26th April. Great event, lots of support and supert drummers. Garmin had it as 6.41 miles but then it always over eggs it, doesn't it!
v pleased with that as i was on the green start with my charity place. lots of weaving about but good fun.
Final sharpener before Edinburgh Marathon. Would not encourage betting on this one. Update- unofficial time! might squeeze a couple of seconds off, met a number of Fetchies both before and after the race
Entered this one at the last minute because Keri isn't running - exciting
Very well organised race.
Slow first kilometre as expected in traffic at the start, then a nice track round the streets of london for a bit. A bit stuffy to run in with a breeze into the face for a bit along the Thames on the way out.
Happy with result - bit tired at the end. Would happily run this again even though it is a massive field.
Loved it, went round with Heather and just enjoyed the day...neither of us wanted the course to end - it's just a lovely, lovely course through the city and finishing on the Mall I just wanted to get within th ehour and was shocked to discover that I had gone round only just over a minute slower than last weekend's race....that 50min target is just around the corner....
Over optimistic prediction so soon after the Halstead marathon.Realistically though, a good run for the first 10k this year. looking forward to some good 10k training, hopefully new P.B. on the cards at either southend classic or chelmsford later this year.
Started too far back so slowed by traffic for the km and was unable to make up the time.
Caught the 6.34am train up, meeting Nick at Faversham. It was perfect conditions for this well organised race through London's landmarks, and we were in the Red A pen, so a bit nervous about getting in the way of the really fast runners! Cloudy but not cols & only light wind. Nick & I went off well & he was only 20secs back at 5k.
I kept up a fast pace throughout & felt the pain for the last 2 k, but beat the 42 minutes mark (as instructed by Flo) finishing in a new PB of 41'54 - and I was amazed to see I was 1st in the "Vintage" category!
Been ill and unable to train at all for 4 months prior. decided last thing to do it. Great run, very well organised.
Ran with Breda
Had to stop after 2K for a wee! All that free lucozade caught up with me A lesson learned as the queue for the loos were 5 or 6 mins
first race post itbs
First timed 10k. Lots of fun - wonkenstein.tumblr.com
Not bad considering the lack of training and the toilet stop !! .. will be better in 2010
Male Place: 2109
Race Number: 9897
Awesome race!!! Due to injury I was struggling to even run 6 miles in the weeks uilding up to the race and I couldn't run any faster then 6:30 pace in training.
When I got to the start line I realised I was starting about 10metres behind Mo Farah, so that got my adrenaline running, My pla was to take it easy but when the race started I just got carried away with the crowd, my first 2 miles were 5:30 and 5:40 which I knew was way too fast but it felt comfortable.
I managed to stick to 6min miles after this and it was only with 1.5 miles left I really started to struggle because of the lack of training.
I managed to put in a strong sprint finish which got me across the line in 38:10 and I finished 73rd out of 12,500.
Doing it again this year, hopefully sub 37min and another top 100 finiah
1st 10k race
