Yep super event, thoroughly enjoyed it. Wind was stiff but not punishing. Going south felt positively balmy at times.
PB and sub 1.30 for me, absolutely what I was after. Chunky ass medal, really good freebies (gloves!) and loads of water. It's very difficult to expect any more than that. Cheers Blackpool, you were great hosts
slowest half ever for me but then I have only run the distance once (October) since a knee operation in 2010. All said; happy to have made it round in under 2hr. As usual fantastic organisation and brilliant fellow runners - i'll be better prepared next year!!!
Big hello to the Sandwell Valley guys - well done
results were up earlier but only just got home and finished unloading the van - either www.ukresults.net/2013/gnwhalf.html or www.sportsystems.co.uk
sory - dodgy RW stuff for the links (been a while) - http://www.ukresults.net/2013/gnwhalf.html or http://www.sportsystems.co.uk
PB here also, by 3 minutes and very unexpected. Very fast course and pretty damn good weather conditions.
A good day all round and a very well organised race.
Just to echo everybody else....fantastic event, really well organised, great goodies (loving the magic gloves!) and we were blessed with good weather. Superb race for me and a massive PB. Thank you, Fylde Coast Running, looking forward to one of your 10ks in a few weeks' time.
Massive thanks to the pacer Matt, apologies for talling non stop but had some really useful advice from him. Used it as a MP run and it worked great. Fab organisation, the hotel made everyone welcome, weather as good as it could have been and excellent fellow runners!
