Beders - are you on for a pacing job then? You'd be an ideal windbreak  I'm 1461. Leaving now.

Good luck all!

That was fun. Cracking day for it and the feared gales turned out to be a gentle breeze against on the way out and assisting on the way back. The sun shone, we got a rucksack instead of a sweatshirt and I beat most of the people I wanted to with a totally unexpected 1:26. Great organisation, including the chip pick-up which could have been disastrous but was very well organised. Well done Knavesmire, living up to your usual high standards as ever.

I got a half-marathon PB! Definitely helped by the chip-timing as it took me quite a while to get over the line - seemed busier than last year?

The support from the marshalls was brilliant, especially in the last couple of miles when I really needed it!

Hope everyone else had a good race.

Fantastically well organised as ever. Sorry I didn't get to meet anyone/many people. M1 was closed on the way up meaning we arrived in the car park about 20 mins before the off! Bit of a rush to get chip etc but all ok and whilst I didn't dip under 1.45 I did a PB of 1.45.05 (chip time, Garmin time was 2 secs slower) so I'm tired but happy

Hi everyone.  Well done to you all.  I managed to get a pb today too - 1:41:24 which is 3 mins off my previous best.  Now sitting here abolsutely shattered!

Hipps - I had a couple of slow miles which I put down to the wind - 4 and 5 were the worst.

Well done Dippycat! Great running.

LMH, I did struggle a bit around mile 4 to 5, i just assumed that was me being stupid and doing the first 2 miles at 8.5 mm

18/01/2009 at 17:43

LMH - Well done

Hippo - another sub 2hr half to add to your collection

18/01/2009 at 17:43


and a 10 mile and 10k pb en route

18/01/2009 at 17:55
That's fantastic Hippo!
18/01/2009 at 17:59

Hippo i looked over the place for you, at 8.5 min miles theres no wonder i did'nt see you.

My days of PBs have long since gone even though the conditions were just about ideal, and the Marshalls were brilliant although the one that told me near the end that i was looking good was being too kind   

18/01/2009 at 17:59

well, erm, it was nowt like your time Dippycat

but, ill be looking for a 10 miler and a 10k to do, thats for sure

18/01/2009 at 18:22
Thanks Knavesmire Harriers, really well organised and great support - loved it. That kit kat in the goody bag was the best one I've ever tasted. Congrats to all who got PBs.

Hippo - you must come to Silverstone and knock some more seconds of your half pb. I will be getting some more Fetch point soon then
