Badger Time is official gun time, took me about 20 seconds to get across the start line. It was pretty hot with no shade at all, very hard work as a result. I enjoyed it anyway and would do this one again. FERC 47:31 50:13 54:00 56:02 49.84

fraggle Predicted temp of 30C, so I'll have a bad one!!

As predicted - indeed a bad one. Too hot, the sunblock stops my skin breathing, so I overheated even more and felt very ill for a while. Have never been so glad to finish a race :o(

onwards to the next one...... Unaffiliated 54:10 1:00:43 58:00 1:01:47 50.26
garfieldhouse I'm going to have a go and try and beat my PB on this one- will depend on the heat though- if it's a scorcher I'm in trouble! Just hope for cloudy skies and a cool light breeze. 
UPDATE: Ouch, lovely race shame about the heat- no breeze and baking in the sun with no shade. The organisers did a lovely job and I would definately do this one again. Lovely flat circuit and I really did enjoy it but wanted a PB, sadly didn't happen as it was so hot. Managed a good time for the first 3K, but there after it was too painful- a lot of runners I saw tried too hard and had to give up. Best bit was the smoothie at the end though- lovely!

Heavyweight Was blisteringly hot. No shade  - no cover - although not a breath of wind either. I paced this poorly 1st 5k in 26:40 - was hoping to do a good time - but heat got to me I think.   Facilities are excellent for this race - but not sure the changing rooms are open for every race that is done here. UKnetrunner 44:39 51:42 59:00 48.47
LeGreg - hes back and he wants reve Disaster. A PW. Was going great reaching 5k in 24ish, and then I just blew up. The course offered no protection from the sun or wind and I just copuldn't find the extra gear I needed. Really really annoyed. Unaffiliated 43:49 50:04 49:00 53:16 50.33

TomM Much hotter than I would have liked, though the extra water stations helped a bit.  A little disappointed with my time,but I'll put that down to the temperature!  Started fast (too fast) at 5min/KM for the first 3KM, then slowed down and was struggling by 7KM.  Boy was I glad to finish. Stubbington Green Runners 53:22 56:47 56:47 54.75
Um Bongo Very, very hot day so missed PB -Sorry if you bet on me. Also my first race since starting my Hadd style training so difficult to know what to expect. Good thing is I felt fine the day after and managed 12 miles -so maybe had more race in me than I thought. Sandhurst Joggers, Windle Valley Runners 43:30 48:44 48:00 50:45 56.81
