ancient Bit disappointed with time.  As usual, gave it good go, and conditions good.  Slow start, with lots of fun runners ahead!! Trent Park Running Club, Watford Joggers 1:04:34 1:07:40 1:08:06 76.24
ascoey I have gone for the watch time (1:30:22 gun-chip) for now. I made a rookie mistake in not realising that it was gun to chip. I lined up near the back determined to keep to a steady pace and it worked. I overtook loads of people, steadily. Had I read the info carefully enough and known it wasn't chip to chip I would have taken up a position 30 yards further forward and altered my pace. My fault and will adjust the time here in a few days. For now, I want that sub 90 minute time recorded. Windle Valley Runners, Dorchester RIOT 1:19:47 1:29:02 1:29:02 50.97

elliot_worth My first 10mile race so in effect I set a new PB/PR this morning around the suburban roads and riverside paths of Twickenham, Kingston & Richmond. The Cabbage Patch 10 attracts some serious runners, and a few years ago was won by the 5K + 10K Olympic Champion Mo Farah! Indeed this year it was won by Kenyan Andrew Lessuda in 47:37. He's won a string of events in the UK this year and is one to keep an eye on in the future.
Seeing as I've not done a lot (well, any) running during the week to supplement my weekend medium distance runs I'm quite happy with my time today. Although, on checking the official time they have me at 1:12:56 which is nearly a minute slower than my watch, something isn't right there and I don't think it's my watch as my splits all look spot on.
The first mile or two was a bit stop/start. Around 1600 runners took part and although I thought I was in a reasonable spot in the holding pen I had to spent a bit of time and energy passing some slower runners until the field began to spread out a bit. Plus the roads weren't entirely closed so a bit of pavement/kerb jumps were needed throughout to negotiate frustrated drivers!
I still managed a decent 1st mile split of 7:21 though mile 2 was a bit quicker at 7:11, it felt a bit too quick so I allowed myself to ease back on mile 3 to run a 7:23. It was probably around now Unaffiliated 1:06:18 1:12:04 1:14:00 1:12:04 63.43

Funky Chicken Garmin time 1:16:28. Would have been nice to have a mat at the start seeing as we were trialling two different chips for them, but hey ho - just need to start nearer the front next time! Unaffiliated 1:09:24 1:15:44 1:19:00 1:17:37 57.25

Houblon gun time 1:36:03 - as seen on the clock took about 35-40 seconds to cross the line so actual time 1:35:28.
Went off what I thoight was Ok but turned out to be too fast with Ally. Started to suffer at 3M (kingston). Got stomach cramps from 4-6 miles but got better. 
Crossed half way at about 45 mins but was never going to maintain the the pace for the last 5m
Brian caught be about 7m. Felt better for last 2.5 miles. 
bit disappointed with time as wanted under 1:30
Hopefully do better next time when I have my garmin back to pace me better Unaffiliated 1:35:28 1:35:28 1:30:00 1:35:28 50.28
