JeffP Should be a fast course but very windy.  Into some wind all miles except 6-8.  From just after 8 miles along the seafront was terrible - last two miles 14m05.  Even winner took 5m46 for last mile! Trafford AC 54:14 55:08 59:40 76.06

lennoxr Always enjoyable run but the howling gale ruined it a bit this year. Wind made it tricky throughout but last 2 miles was particularly brutal straight into it. Maidenhead AC 1:01:48 1:01:48 59:59 1:03:14 74.06

Mave Have had to readjust my expected time down from 1:30 to 2:00. Broke my big toe at the end of september, and I've not trained since. A few trial jogs in the last wek indicate it'll be ok to run GSR, but more for fun. Might run with a friend who is a running newbie.

UPDATE: Did better than hoped, but still way under what I can do. Paced newbie for first half. Decent negative split until that brutal last two miles! The power walk to Fratton station as soon as I crossed the finish line was tough too! Pocklington Runners, FERC 1:35:11 1:41:46 2:00:00 1:41:46 48.61
