..........that hill :-O ! . It was a bit of a tough one. Louise that's no excuse, I didn't prepare myself for the run, only decided to do last week. Sorry I didn't meet up with anyone, was anyone wearing the club vest ?

Hi TB, that was tough!
I've left the others in the pub ...
88:36, Snoop was just behind me :-)

Don't think I'll go for another run today! Angelis hope your 15 miler goes OK this afternoon ....

Hi All,
That was pretty hard work on a loop that seemed either to be uphill or downhill and virtually no flat.
I managed a 1:19:19 by my watch and wondered how the course might compare with a flat 10-miler. Any ideas how much the hills added to the time? I'm trying to predict a flattish 1/2M time.

thanks in advance

Brian, I crept just under 80 mins at the Cabbage Patch 10 in October which is pretty much flat, so 8 1/2 minutes slower here ...

Tiger - nice to see you again and yes just back from second run of the day of 16 miles

Thanks Tiger, it's useful to have some reference points. I started running mid-2003 and today was my first '10' hence my question.

Did you feel like you came into the race with comparable form to the Cabbage Patch, or like myself, were you struggling to shake off the mince pies? ;^)

The results are up guys. Brian, you were 187th out of 450 in 1:19:44.

Congratulations on surviving Ebbisham Lane!

Still pinching myself after coming in in 1:11:37.... 5and a half minutes better than I managed last time I did this race!

Now feeling that a sub-1:30 1/2M is within my grasp this year.

This was c. 9 mins slower than my average 10 miler, due to:-

a) lethargy/sluggishness due to the post Chrissy timing.

b) undulating terrain (and how!)

c) didn't run at hardest - treated it as the first pre-marathon training sesh of the year.

It's a cracking good way of getting over the Chrissy indulgences - timing just right!

Surprised not more Allsorts and Oddballs there as their local race.

I'd say, keep the race as it is, don't change anything, although that last mile competing with the GTV boy racers and Sunday Rover drivers is a bit dodge.

BTW - the content of the goody bag was novel and intersting.

It reminded me of the last time I ran Tadworth, about three years ago, when I was given a running hoody in that material (I can't remember what its called) - very original.

So 100% to the Tadworth organisers for originality and usefulness - great value for £6!
