alisterrobson Sorry but am taking my Garmin reading as final. No idea how there's 30 seconds difference between the official results! Hard, damn hard. I'm blaming my cold.

batmouse FAb.  Tried to take it easy as the last thing I wanted was an injury at this stage.  Chuffed with my time.  Loved the run.  Sand hard though.  I maybe need to train more! Unaffiliated 59:30 1:06:56 1:25:00 1:06:56 52.80
Black Cat Looking forward to this. Update - Found it a bit tough but got inside the time I predicted. Thanks maccas dad for the encouragement, Joggerbaz for the company in the first couple of miles and cuppacoffee for being bag lady in the nicest possible way!

Lisa T Legs turned to jelly after the sand at the start and really struggled for the first 1.5 miles. Found the terrain pretty tough at times. However, I made it ... yeaaah! Weather was fab, scenery great and mars bar & crisps at the end most welcome. Could fit a few dozen fetchies in my windjacket though as no mediums left!!!

Old Croc LOL - just realised last 7 miler was a very different race.  Looking fwd to run - not the drive back up north after it though.  See you all there.

Official times now updated to a bit more realistic.  Hard run but good fun - was tired all the way legs heavy from bike races Sat and Tues.  Forres Harriers 53:43 53:43 56:00 53:43 58.99

rf_fozzy Good race, but very hard work. Legs felt very tired from cricket on sat, and a mile across South Shields beach on the sand drained whatever strength I had left - was then just concentrating on keeping going for the last 6miles! Still ran ok though and was good fun. Airienteers, North Leeds Fell Runners 48:48 49:50 49:50 60.97

rupert tb Windy this time round! Elvet Striders 48:09 48:46 48:46 71.14
Screeners Found this fairly tough going.  The sand at the start and finish just pulled the strength from my legs and the grass paths were very uneven and rutted so I felt I was running unevenly and that started me worrying about my back.  Saying that, it was a gorgeous run, fantastic scenery, very well organised and the sun stayed out the whole time.  I would have liked to have run it a bit faster but if I do it again, at least I will know what to expect. Elswick Harriers 1:07:13 1:07:13 1:07:13 51.80

Vicki: Graceless Whippet Official time 55:57, actual time was about 30 seconds quick, which is still bloody slow when compared to last years 50:44 lol.  Full report on my blog: http://www.realbuzz.com/blogs/u/aminita/vicki-graceless-whippet/

Enjoyed the race as I always do, and got to chat to loads of folks before, during and after - bonus! :D Jarrow & Hebburn AC 54:05 55:57 55:00 55:57 62.23
