Biastai Easiest race yet!  I have picked my pace up in training.  LSRs at 7:30 ish and other easy runs at 7:26. Ran steady up to 22m.  Not a bad result with only 2 LSRs for it.  Next one should be interesting if I keep the training at the same level. Unaffiliated 3:18:30 3:21:00 3:21:00 64.88

Dickie York May be too many race miles in the legs for a top performance, see how it goes on the day.
Started off rather warm and sunny then became a bit over cast which made it more comfortable.
Run felt comfortable, 1st half in 1:26:20, slowed down after that, but very surprised to finish sub 3 in 38th place.
Very well organised race, great marshalls and support, definitely worth doing again.
Great to see Mick and Phil there as well as the rest of the Fetchies. Pocklington Runners 2:41:35 2:57:42 3:10:00 2:58:53 70.68

duncman Far too hot. Too flat. An endless long track to go out and back on. Wanted to give up at 8 miles as I was bored. 

Not disappointed with time as the course did nothing for me, but was hoping to get a PB of sub 3:50 at least......Oh well!

On the plus side though - great organisation, great goody bag, great atmosphere. 

Won't be there next year unless the course changes though :( Unaffiliated 3:55:32 4:03:49 3:45:00 4:13:29 48.50

kstuart Supposed to be a quick course so i may well give it a sub 4 shot here or then again i may not. Depends how ankle is on the day due to twisting it on a pothole the other day. Trail Running Association, FERC 3:58:03 4:21:33 4:05:00 4:49:14 42.52

R4R Target was under 3:30, so pleased with 3:29:21, if slightly disappointed with way I did it - first half was too quick (1:41), and was struggling in the closing stages.
Spent most of last 7 or 8 miles doing mental arithmetic to make sure I got under target Northern Veterans AC, Penny Lane Striders 3:29:21 3:29:21 3:30:00 3:29:21 67.90

Scopey Started too fast and didn't back off. Was running near 1/2 pace and by half way it was too late and the damage was done (went through half sub 1:35 when 3:15 full would have been good going..... big lesson learned....... back to sticking to heart rate !!)
Went through 16 on good time but cramps in calfs and legs hit hard by 18 miles......
multiple stop and stretch jog / walk - was unable to go faster than 8:40 pace or legs cramped......

Steve72 Very well organised race and ideal weather. Hit my predicted time with unerring accuracy, however that's only half the story. I didn't attempt sub-3hr but I was on for about 3.02 ish until about 20miles and then I started to struggle. A couple of runners broke away from me saying they were going for sub-3hr but I  overtook them later on and they faded badly so I'm glad I stuck to my pace-ish. Last few miles were hard but I'm glad all those who bet on me haven't been disappointed! Great race, will do again. FERC 3:05:35 3:05:35 3:05:00 3:05:35 67.04
