Great Race & well done everyone. I have an unofficial time of 1'30. So i'm well pleased. Would like to thank the lady who dragged me round for the last 2 miles.

Better race then Kingston....... for me. Finished in 1hr 24min, my estimate time was 1hr 25min. I now know I could have gone faster at Kingston .
Saw a couple of you guys going past, but couldn't keep up to introduce myself. Was expecting to see the bunny crossing the finishing line but couldn't see her.

Morning all!! Well it was a PB bonanza!! Well done everyone. You all should try the Great South Run at Portsmouth
next year, that one is completely flat and you'll smash these times.

Oops, forgot to say, the top half are with the results in and with their target times in brackets. If the bottom half could post their time and whether it was a PB or not then I'll update it.

Hi Caz - Sorry I missed al of you yesterday - arrived (still drunk - as went out with my best mate on sat night / sunday morning!) at the start line with 2 mins to go!

Mangaed to get PB too though (perhaps the alcohol helped numb the pain)!


21/10/2002 at 11:45
...By the way - what's the next race for everyone??
21/10/2002 at 11:56
Hi DavidS

There a load on forumites running the Brighton 10k , have'nt decided yet , but its filling up fast
21/10/2002 at 12:01
Hi David, yes I wondered where you were ans others!

My next race is the Deal 5 miler on the 3rd November. I expect a very cold windy wet seafront run. Then I have the Brighton 10K and as RR says, it's filling up fast with over 60 of us running it so far, although I haven't checked the thread today.

Well done on everyone's PB!
21/10/2002 at 12:01
Oops I meant and others (not ans!)
21/10/2002 at 12:11
Thanks for that - do you have a link to the Brighton 10km site?

Also - are there any 1/2 marathons over the next couple of months?

I am still very new to this road race thing - so still trying to find my feet (quite literally)!


Ps Spans - well done with the time! Still fancy meeting for a training run sometime? My legs are quite knacked so will prob leve it to next Sunday if you're around!
21/10/2002 at 12:13
My next race ? I'm thinking of doing Help a London Child 10k on Oct 27 at Wimbledon as I'm in Wimbledon for the weekend, Then my next event is an Orinteering event near Guildford
21/10/2002 at 13:12
By the way - I thought it was an excellent run yesterday - very picturesque course and well supported / marshalled - and above all else, started well on time.

Thanks to all at Stragglers / Cabbage Patch 10 for a great race!

David, if you check out the Brighton Reebok 10K thread there are links on there. However it is a massive thread and you can enter online at activeeurope.

I hope this link works

Did this race. It was mostly flat. The people I met in the race helped me to achieve a really good time (for me) amd I would like to thank them.

They were even more friendly than anyone at the GNR (and I'm a Geordie!) - hope I got your names right - thanks John (Tortoise Racers) and Cath from the Cabinet Office.
