Well i made it, took me 1hr 46mins, but i got round and that is good enough for me. Did not enjoy that hill up and over the A10 on the 2nd lap though i must admit!
But an excellently organised run, i could have done with another drinks stop though, (but maybe that was just me?!) Thanks though Ware Joggers, if the legs are still up for it after the London Marathon, i may be back next year.
thanks to all the organisers, really impressed with the marshalling and all the encouragement they gave, this was my first race yesterday and my first ever attempt at 10 miles so i am pleased with my time of 1hour 20min and it has spurred me on to do more. the hills were fine but i struggled with running on the grass around the meads and common, very energy sapping, give me tarmac and asphalt any day!!
thanks again and will definatly be part of this event next year, great charity!
Very nice run, marshalls were very good. I shall be back next year
Glad you all enjoyed it
I was at the top of the hill forgot to put Fetch top on over the Marshalls vest
Next year you'll be sure to come down the Vine for a celebrational drink
I managed to haul myself round in a PW of 1.35-something. The last few weeks of intermittant training (work getting in the way) put paid to any thoughts of a sub-90.
I actually liked the bits on the grass around the meads - was a well thought out course, avoiding the popular cycle way as much as possible.
It was good to get a few shouts of 'Go Pirate'.
Great organisation and superb marshalling. Loved the attention to details with the tree roots being painted white on the path up to the hill over the A10.
Would have preferred a water station at 5 miles as well as at (approx) 2.5 and 7.5.
All in all I reckon I'll be back next year, top work organisers.
