tramps
Tough headwind between 6K - 8K slowed my progress, but very pleased with finally getting sub-40
Marts
Good race. fast but save something fo the drag at 8.5k. PB potential if I can get through December without my traditional cold. Oh and you get Beer for finishing
Sorry all too much wind again missed it by 3 secs.
1st 5k 18:20 2nd 5k 19:07 despite moving up about a dozen places
Paulie
Pleasant race around the fens, although running the seventh and eighth kilometers into the wind made it tough going.
Jigs
PB attained !! :)
But disappointed I didn't get under 45 mins :(
Windy on the return route. Maybe forget about the Piper next year! Yeah ??
frizzle
My PB was set on this course last year so fingers crossed for another one!!
Oh dear!!! Had cold and cough and the course was really windy so sorry guys way off a PB!!!!!! Will have to do it another time when I'm feeling on better form!!
KinkyS
Missed a PB by 2 seconds, argh! Never really felt up for it to be honest - the first km was a quickie due to being downhill, but everything I made up there I lost in 6-8km because of the headwind, and then again at 8.5km because of the uphill. Legs felt heavy and unresponsive. Trying not to feel too disappointed - I haven't done any speed training, I'm recovering from a marathon, it was windy, I'm injured and I've got some stuff going on in my head. 19th woman out of 225 isn't that bad, but sorry about the points guys :-(
2.5 years and almost 4000 miles of training since I ran 45:34 for the first time, and still the 45 minute barrier eludes me...
Blotts Mate
Pb for the course but missed a pb by 3 secs. 1st F45 apparently. Great to meet more Fetchies
PlodderRW
Woke up after a shite nights sleep feeling pants with swollen glands and decided to give this a miss. Good start to marathon training more important to me at the mo so tried a gentle run the next day instead.
IBB,MBGOG
Strong wind and a night up with the baby conspired to slow me down on this one. However, great race, very well organised and a lovely course - overall, I had a great time and would recommend this to anyone (wind off the fens notwithstanding...)
No.8 ™
PB'd by 1 minute despite really strong winds.

Set off at 5:45 pace, aiming for sub 36 and everything was cool for the first 5k. Drafted a few people and picked people off until the headwind struck.

Tailed a couple of runners from 5k to 6k and then dropped them to make ground on a pack of 6 in front. Used the 6, that soon became 4 for the next 2km, sheltering from the wind and "resting" but they were dropping off the pace quickly. Made a break at the 8km mark and I dropped all of them, but hit the undulation at 8.5km which slowed me a bit.

Final 1.5km no one to shelter behind and had to grind it out, got caught by 1 runner and then entered the home straight which was an uneven, muddy track - not the best surface for a fast finish!

Finished in 10th place, pleased with the time especially in the conditions, did want sub 36, but happy with the outcome. Saw KatieS, Jigs, Red Tomato, Blott's Mate, Marts, Old Man, Frizzle and of course my running buddy Dangerous Kev. Happy New Year
Ricardo
Quite enjoyable run really. PB attained since its my first 10K :) Wind was a bit bad at one point tho' (weatherwise that is!). Am now going to sample my beer. Happy New Year!
Forest Faerie
Sorry to all those who bet on me. I tried my best. Good race with great atmosphere, especially the piper lol. Who would have thought there was a hill in the fens. They must have had it specially built for the race
Metal Martin
Really pleased with this for my second 10k. Smashed my previous PB by over 6 minutes (to be fair I was 3 stone heavier for my previous 10k), but felt that I had more to give in the section between 5k and 8k. i was slowed down by the wind and from making sure I had some oommph left for the hill, which wasn't as bad as I feared.

Very friendly race, loved it.
Old Man
Frizzle wants to run a PB (51.54) but it will depend on conditions on the day (wind, ice etc). The course is certainly capable of a PB (I measured it!!) but we will just have to see on the morning!!
Vitalstatistix
Very windy in the Fens that day...straight into your face for the second half...and it was uphill !
ml2run
Very windy, my first 10k!!
JKC Norfolk
wow
