This event is listed on these dates:
Quite a pleasant run; undulating and a gentle drizzle to keep cool!
45 seconds off last years time but will take that if it leads to another top 80 place finish in the great north run in 2 weeks.
Treating this as my last big training run before the GNR two weeks later - but saying that, would still hope to beat last year's time as I wasn't running well at all last year with the back trouble I had. **Race Report** I PB'd by about 2 1/2 minutes which I am pleased about but I didn't find it easy at all. Stomach cramped up from almost the opening whistle and the first four miles were just hell. Settled a bit then and I started to pick people off but from about 7 miles, my legs just went to jelly and it all just felt really hard after that. I suppose if I can still PB feeling like that then that is a good sign but I just wish I had felt a bit better whilst running. I think I need to re-think my pre-race breakfast and the amount of liquid I am taking on board - I think I actually drank too much, it was all sloshing around in my stomach and making me feel sick. Still, a PB is a PB!
Had an absolute terrible run from the start, over a min slower than last year, not good but will try again next year, hopefully fitter
I beat last year's time so that's enough for me to say I enjoyed it. The coffee was nice at the finish.

Well I did it, knocked three & a half minutes off my PB, won the 1st L35 prize, a silver medal in the NE Vets 10 mile champs, and a bottle of wine as a spot prize. Had a cracking run, went through 5k in a season best, through 10k in only 20 secs off my pb (another season best). I just worked really hard for the whole race including all of the many hills - trying to catch my club mate Rachel, who was ahead of me by only 200m from mile two right through to the finish.
I really enjoyed myself today, it's what makes all of the training worth it.
Erm, found another gear...
10k split = 45.20, which is also a big PB
Did ok, not really my distance - 10k or less - but I might have a go at the Brampton and see if I can get a new PB since I'm only seconds away. Perfect conditions for me today - nice and drizzly.
Sorry to whoever bet on me though, will try harder in the Brampton.
Felt good until about 7 miles then started to tire abit. Was on for sub 67 mins until got a painfull stitch @ 8.5 miles which hampered me until the race end
an sb..that''ll do for me what with all my numerous niggles
Would like to beat PB set at Lune Valley (very hilly course); but who knows!
Great race, brilliant organisation and beautiful course - uphill saved by all the downhill!
I have done this in 1.30, a few years ago, but I don't think I've done enough training to beat that. However, I'm still going to be trying to get under 1.30
Well, should have beaten my previous PB, but had a bad start to the race. Really bad stitch a the start meant I had to walk and then slow jog for about 2 miles. So really pleased to catch up the lost time and come within 5 seconds of my PB.
Head cold, didn't run very well on hills, felt better on second half almost caught Lynne, Lynne's time 01:41:37
