Based on pre marathon form I should do better than this,
But if I could get round in 10-10:30mm pace it would be a huge improvement on Cambridge HM time and good prep for KRR2015
Badger
SB by 22 seconds, 2nd best time ever, best since 2007
Hills of Death (HOD)
negative split run pleased as haven't been running well of late
Ally2
great eastern run. knew ben would be a target and I went with him. Through 3 miles in 15:00, 10k in 31:17 (still felt ok), 10 mile in 50.54 (hanging in). last 5k in 15:52. 10 sec pb. had to cope with a stitch at 8 due to uneven road surface and dave Wardle coming back to me at half way. It went fairly quickly. Ben left me at half way and i shook Dave off at 9 mile.
Ricardo
So I wanted to have a trial of my hopeful marathon pace, and intended to follow the 1:40 pacers. This went ok for about a mile, but just got annoying. Ended up just doing a faster manageable pace.
jlucas
My best race in ages in terms of executing a plan and just a shame I didn't trust my training and doubted myself. Very happy with a 40 second pb but the competitor in me still wants a sub 80minute half!
TrudiP
765th (3787 finishers) Totally inadequate toilets for number of competitors. People were still queuing after the start time! Starting pens not supervised, complete free for all, didn't even hear the gun! Was pleased to be given a technical T-shirt, offered in choice of sizes, S,M,L. My 'small' T-shirt measures to a 40 inch chest
Pingu99
I can't believe that the start was so poor, it took over 10 mins to get over the line (and I was in the 1:45 funnel. The course was also long (my Garmin said 13.28 anyone else any comments). Being a Peterborough resident and with the course going virtually past my front door I feel the need to support it but I also feel that the runners are being used as a cash cow for the council. To all those supporters and marshalls a big thanks you were awesome and the water stations were well managed (but could do with bins to drop your bottles in). Will I do it again probably but come on Peterborough City Council raise your game all the runners do.
iwannarun76
Yes the course was definitely longer..Even my Garmin said it was 13.28..But am happy that I was able to shave off 8 minutes from my PB despite the course being lobger
hookyspelooky
My garmin also measured 13.28m
I knew I wouldn't go well, still injured and underprepared. Lovely to run with my brother, though I told him to carry on without me at mile 6 and he finished 25mins before me (his first half). Good conditions, fairly good support along the way. A few bored looking marshalls towards the end and some idiot kids on motorbikes along the path just before the finish.
macapple
Great race. I thought the starting pens worked really well this year. Huge improvement from when I did it in 2012 and had to climb over the barriers to get in. I went in the 1:45-2:00 pen and crossed the line in 4 minutes. Toilet queue was awful but no worse than other races I've done.
K-Bal
Absolutely agree with Pingu99 about the council showing hints at ripping runners off - slowly increasing the fee over the last few years, withdrawing free parking, using an entry system that adds over £2 to the fee, etc. Shame, as almost everything else about the race is fantastic. Marshals, volunteers, spectators and fellow runners all go towards making it a wonderful, friendly event.
