CJO Three quarters of this race is fine. The last quarter, over the seven sisters is hell. Ran a good pace but nearly cramped up on the hills. Wadhurst Runners 2:47:05 3:35:00 3:40:00 3:35:00 59.05

Running Fish what a load of big woofly pants. never in the history of athletic endeavour has such a massive positive split been recorded. i knew we'd all set off too quick, partly due to the tailwind, and also down to race ignorance, but i just couldnt pull myself out of it. was going fine up to about 18 miles, but finished the last 6 being overtaken by asthmatic pensioners out walking their dogs.

credit to the organsiers and marshalls for a great race, (with the possible exception of the seperate number and chip collection arrangement), and will hopefully be back to recover some credability next year. Unaffiliated 2:59:15 3:36:22 3:36:22 62.77

Kent plodder Tough run. Twisted my ankle at about 8 miles and struggled from there - esp the downhills. Sevenoaks AC 3:12:18 3:51:00 5:47:49 38.05
Silver Strider Reached mile 16ish in under 2 hours. Left knee had been giving gip from about 9 miles. Walked last 10 miles in a lot of pain. Could not bend leg or load the joint. Particularly painful downhill. Once it had gone completely numb I tried to run again several times. Couldn't even start though. Disappointing end. Likely to have finished in 3:30ish and top 20 place.
