BrianJ Course felt a bit long, and I got 4.2 miles at 4 mile marker, but Garmin lost signal under stadium so didn't get final estimate. Course was very crowded and couldn't get up to speed until 2 miles had elapsed. Stadium finish awesome, slowed down a bit to make it last longer! North Herts Road Runners 47:10 47:10 51:35 50.51

Flat Out Fi Was v relieved to get round in one piece!  Started v steady and as back didn't feel any worse I decided to up the tempo after mile one so was just happy to do it today and didn't worry about my time.  Great race and fab atmosphere.  Loved running around the track at the end.  It felt amazing!  Said hi to Paula Radcliffe too! Saffron Striders RC 31:45 32:45 35:52 69.38

GD Never did get up to target pace due to the crowding. Wish the organisers had told us that Westfield wouldn't be opening their car-park, would have got there about 45 mins earlier! 
Great to get to run in the stadium, of course - other than that pretty poor.  Course far too narrow for those sort of numbers, and I was in the red wave - guess it can only have been worse for later waves? FERC 29:09 32:53 35:30 63.09

HermanBloom Assume I got lucky as was in White Wave and apart from a slow-ish first mile I didn't have issues with congestion. course twisty for sure, but good fun with good atmosphere and enjoyed running around the velodrome etc with mates. Finish of course was great and breezed in and out of the place. Decent entertainment as well, if you like pop bands! Windle Valley Runners, FERC 38:50 38:50 42:00 44:43 48.72
