KinkyS
Very hot! Pleased considering the heat, humidity, offroadiness and hills. 8th lady :-)
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.
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!
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!
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

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 :-).

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
CStar
V.hot, fairly hilly and horribly out of shape. Good kick up the backside to get back into serious training again...
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.
