There seems to be a general concensus that the course was about 3m not 3.1m

Bad form, considering this was a welsh championship event and an U23 international !

Pity really, as it was a well organized event apart from this...mmm, it's gonna tough to beat this PB !

I thought the course was the same as last year wasn't it? 

 If it was, I still shaved two minutes off my time - v pleased! 

Enjoyed the race.

it was the same as last year I thought... so maybe last year was short too?

Apparently it was 220m too short.

The lead car took a wrong turn at about 3k, and cut out 220m, so last year was correct.

 I think it's fair to extrapolate your time  based on the 4780m to make it 5k.

For me I added 48 secs to my 17:31 to make 18:19. so a new PB woo hoo !

Cancer run in Bute Park next weekend, anyone?

Just found some excellent photos of the race - see http://www.flickr.com/photos/22994830@N07/sets/72157604026285917/

Also some pictures and official results on http://www.bmftraining.com/

How not to be in any photos - follow the dragon all the way around (probably just as well, I'm not good in photos normally and I doubt would be any better by the end of that.....)
