_bod_ I was having a great race until after the water stop when the wind was switched on.  At the turn at 8K I was almost being pushed back up the downhill.  Couldn't get any oxgen out of the air for the wind and rain!  Well done all, difficult conditions! Unaffiliated 35:57 35:57 36:42 72.91
AlanO 1st time under 38mins in 3yrs. Splits - 18.55 / 19.00. Pretty happy with race. Ran steady throughout and only dipped slighlty 8-9 km running into the strong Wind/Rain. Greenock Glenpark Harriers 36:50 37:34 38:20 37:55 72.58

dd PB in extreme weather conditions. Had vaguely hoped for nearer the hour but got caught in the bottleneck at about 1k and lost 30 secs and never really made it back. You can never really predict weather at a seaside race but for the last few years its been a lovely sunny night. Tonight there were severe weather warnings in place! Torrential rain at about 5k and then the knock you over wind from 8k lost me time as well. Still a PB is a PB! Unaffiliated 1:01:42 1:01:42 1:01:42 50.08

ian9657 Not sure what was worse, watch broken, gale force wind, rain or sleet.  Had to run with my eyes closed at one point !! Glasgow South Running Club 41:35 42:53 45:07 67.15

Sunbed Athlete Horrendous conditions for the race tonight.
Credit to the organisers/marshalls/helpers who had to stand out in those conditions whilst collecting race chips or handing out t-shirts.
Took 5th place after a last 2k battle with young Eriterian laddie.Great course & always well supported.4 years ive ran this race now & have taken 11th,9th,7th & 5th places respectively.Will it be 3rd then 1st lol. Cambuslang Harriers, Scottish Veteran Harriers Club 31:29 32:05 33:15 82.25

Yano I need to get 40.45 for a course PB which is unlikely. I may not have the speed just now but I'll give it a go! Post race: jings that was wild, wet and windy! First 10k of the year so reasonably happy with the time. Couldn't have gone much faster on the night. Unaffiliated 39:32 43:29 41:30 43:29 62.26
