Albert O Balsam Hot, hot day !  Walked halfway up hill just after 6 mile mark and for anout 500 yards after 8 miler mark.  Best idea of the day as it left enough to finish strongly. Was warm, wind on tops of hills was warm as well - glad for the 3 water stations Mid Essex Casuals 1:18:58 1:21:26 1:28:28 50.68

john_n Will run this if we get enough marshalls - we now have enough marshals so I am running. I am laying out the 10M course so I have no excuses for not knowing where I am going.  

First time i have been involved in race organisation, was a lot of work but worth it in the end. As others have commented the weather was too hot, it was muggy and airless. I rode the course before we raced it to make sure that all of the signs I had placed where still in place. That probably took a bit of out me, its was hard work and a much slower time than I did a few weeks ago when recee'ing the course. Good to see a few fetchies and as usual a close race between Vicksta and myself, with Vindicator disappearing into the distance :-). Bishops Stortford RC 1:10:16 1:10:16 1:15:00 1:18:29 57.83
KinkyS Very hot!  Pleased considering the heat, humidity, offroadiness and hills.  8th lady :-) Todmorden Harriers & AC 1:10:28 1:14:07 1:18:37 62.84

Looby Loo It was the hotest day of the year disappointed with my time but when I saw someone collapsed with less than a mile to go it put it into perspective. Harlow RC 1:36:05 1:47:09 1:47:09 50.06

RichardW A tad too hot for me today.  And to think I was debating whether I should do this or the Boreham Wood Half Marathon.  I'd've probably died doing the half.  Well done, Bryn. Herts Phoenix AC 1:23:45 1:27:19 1:25:00 1:33:05 56.80
robrea another well organised run, well worth the hours travel to get there! this was the toughest race ive ever done, the heat was a killer! 4th place for me which is my best ever result Harwich Runners 54:12 56:54 1:02:00 1:04:25 68.31
Vicksta Just squeaked a PB! Set off way too fast for the first two miles, but hey, it was mostly downhill ;-) A very hot and humid day, and an undulating and predominantly off-road course meant I was never going to be fast, but as my 10M PB is weak I thought I still had a shot. After the very nasty hill in the woods at 6 miles, I thought I wouldn't get it, but after that the course did get a bit flatter, and just managed to get it. Ran with Kinky S up to about 6 miles, and had John n in my sights most of the way too. Nice to see a few more Fetchies at the end too. An enjoyable run, all and all! 9th lady. Am kind of wishing I had done the 10K now, I would have been 3rd in that! Harlow RC 1:13:50 1:13:50 1:18:55 1:18:48 63.06
Vindicator Very hot, humid and airless!

Started off with the intention of running this as a tempo run, but went in to Midweek league 10K mode as the 5K was the same - fast downhill. Reigned it in from then on, but the off road nature and the heat was getting to me. I bedded in to enjoy the scenary for the undulations in the last half finishing 3 mins outside PB time (was never going to even on a normal course in those conditions). Was good to talk to KinkyS, John n, Canary Yellow and Koughkandi.

Overerall a fun and enjoyable run, but would have liked it a bit cooler! Harlow RC 1:09:26 1:09:26 1:14:16 59.63
