Well that was soooooooo much fun i can't tell you! Very glad i did it and managed to finish it, but could the weather have been any worse?
Never mind a race that can be ticked off the list and never to be repeated! Well done to everyone who took part.
Well done everyone. I cant wait to do it again next year!!!.
Caroline, I dont think the weather could've been much worse, the wind actually blew me backwards at one point so i was running on the spot (just before going under the bridge for the second time) and a gust of wind at the top of the hill sent me into the hedge!
I did it in just under 1:07 so pleased with that. I ran up the hill the 1st time but walked 1/2 of it the 2nd time.
I want to do it again and i want to be under 1 hour (giving up smoking tomorrw, nicotine patches at the ready).
Well done everyone
Well done everyone! Is there anywhere that the times are posted or do we just work out from people posting their own times against a list of finishers where we came - I don't have a Garmin/watch and didn't want to get my non-waterproof mobile out to check the time.
My fave bit was thinking: "Won't kick off for the sprint at the end yet as haven't seen the 9k marker yet" and then turning the corner to see the school gates... must have been the rain in my eyes.
Definitely one to do next year and to sadistically invite running friends to as well!
Thanks to everyone on support in the kitchens and all the marshalls too - a great, well organised run all round!
Hi Dom, Crowborough runners have their own website and the results will be published there but I don't know when. http://www.crowboroughrunners.org.uk/ should take you there and then follow the links. Hope this helps,
Wow, what a race! I loved the down hill, enjoyed splashing my way through the ford, cursed the hills and battled the gale force winds.. but I was still smiling at the end.
Thank you to all the marshalls who stood outside for hours in the rain and wind.
Photos from the race are up on www.antbliss.com we got pretty wet through too, but it was good to see so many of you at the finish with a smile on your faces !
We had a good 6hrs at the computer afterwards sorting out the photos and drying out afterwards... Hopefully the cold won't come !
great race despite the weather...but my tactics backfired - fast walking the steep bit meant I lost time even though I managed to get some breath back. Thoughts anyone?
Has anyone found the results yet?
Hi, from the crowborough runners website the following;
"Photos taken during the Crowborough Runners 10K race on December 2nd are available to view on the following website – www.ianburnettphotography.co.uk . [ N.B. 15 per cent of the profits will be returned to the Crowborough Runners club.]"
But no sign of the results yet. Some great photos with most looking good!
I'm assuming you found yourself then - I think you said you were number 4 : (use 04 in the search box)
Here's one of you on the finish hill :
Well done on finishing in the terrible conditions !
Hi the results are out! http://www.crowboroughrunners.org.uk/
Hi Caroline and all
Totally agree with well done for getting through the race
I too am pleased and Caroline I will try again next year and I think you should too .
Fantastic to meet you on the day to steady my nerves. If you are ever in T Wells we should go out for a run together
Take care and keep me in the loop if you know of any good beginner runs around the 10k mark
Do it again! You must be joking, especially as tonight is blowing another gale here in Crowborough. Email address is firstname.lastname@example.org so please feel free to email and let me know if you are planing some gentle runs. Not sure of many 10km's round but already stupidly thinking about doing longer runs in prep for the FLM.
It really was so nice to meet up with someone else on Sunday, especially as I didn't know anyone else there.
