bonners Brilliant race and would recommend to anyone.  A word of warning would be the gentle climbs over the last couple of miles.  They slayed me today mainly due to the added heat.  Really well organised race, just need a couple more signs for the meeting points and where to go back on the park and ride. Abergele Harriers 1:32:12 1:38:08 1:40:00 1:43:01 60.11

roberton Summary: A great event, but this time too hot. And I messed up.

A bit more: Well it went _okay_. 1h 54min 37sec, which is a PB by a whopping 5 seconds! I expected to do it quicker though and it was really hard, much harder than the Liverpool one a couple of months ago (the 1:54:42 one). I decided to stop trying to do negative splits and just run how I felt. Never again. And it was so hot. 20C and in the sunshine the whole time. Ouch! FERC 1:41:07 1:54:37 1:52:00 1:54:37 53.15
