Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.



The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

Thanks,
Ian Williams aka Fetch

PB. Chuffed, target was 1:52. Course officially 193 metres short. Chip time: 1:45:37, adjusted time: 1:46:32 based on a pace of 4:45/km.

My RW event review...

In short: A race with lots of potential
In full: ...but the 2010 edition of this race wasn't quite good enough in a few too many areas.

* Late start in very cold conditions - bad news for the unprepared.
* Starting gun/horn inaudible even a little way back. Note: loud music does not equal a great atmosphere.
* Wave starts clearly needed for a race with that many runners.
* First eight miles heavily congested, especially Bute Park.
* Insufficient barriers and protecting from street furniture (bollards, seating etc.) in pedestrianised areas.
* Mile marker signage was inconspicuous.
* Route ran deviated from published route resulting in a course short by at least 0.1 miles - in my view, the least forgivable of errors and the most disappointing. I would expect to see some official acknowledgement of this.
* Disappointing goody bag for the money.
* Having to cross the race route to exit after the finish wasn't sensible, and I'm sorry to say that the marshals at this section were silent and did not exercise any control or otherwise assist those trying to cross.

On the plus side, despite being unsuitable for the number of runners I found the course to be very nice on the whole, and the people of Cardiff gave runners some phenomenal support. Although the shuttle train wasn't running, getting to the start was a breeze.

I'll hopefully run this again, but only after they've run another race where the more important issues have been addressed. Furthermore I'd need to see some acknowledgement, from the race organisers, of the short course, because I wouldn't run any race where I wasn't certain the organisers took the distance issue very seriously. I hope I go back to run this in 2012 or beyond.

Loved it!

Chip time was 2.04.22, but course was 0.12 of a mile short, so I've put in an adjusted time - UPDATE - changed it back now the distance has been adjusted!

First run for 3 weeks. Didn't know if knee would last till end, but actually no problem.

Altered time to make up for the distance measured on garmin!

I ought to be good for a PB....this is not a target race though. * does 80's style end-of-movie air-punch* Fuck yes, 9minutes and 21 second PB.
smash
Ran the first half with Pig and Sam, and the rest with my iPod. Second half considerably quicker than first, but still comfortable and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing.

Fast, flat, brilliant sunshine, well organised and big fat PB.

Nice.

Leg tightened up at 1/4 way round, painful by 1/2 and excruciating by 3/4, managed to hobble over the line, then couldn't walk for a day, literally. All that work on the leg hasn't paid off, and it's back to the drawing board.

Where did that come from? 5 (yes, 5) minutes off my PB!! I am still in a state of shock! Brilliant race. The bits through the park and across the bay where especially lovely. Having to run back down the dual carriageway at the end came as a bit of a shock though!
