Alas I came last in my first trail 21km a few months back Tbh tho, it just spurs you on.

On the actual day, as was such an awesome run I didn't really care

When I started doing cross country at school I'd never really run further than 3 miles before. One of my first races was 5 miles and I came last by quite a long way. I remember one of my teachers being great about it and encouraging me on. Really motivated me to improve and get better. Now, I'm aiming for a 2:50 marathon next year.

I was close to last though. But I was taking my pace. I do not want to push myself so hard much so it was my first event. At the end, it was all worth it. I did not quit now that's an achievement for me.

I started running in 2010 and did a 5km for charity and finished 38mins, poor time.  Then this a 10km and finished 1hr 05mins.  I wanted to run faster so I made a small investment here and achieved my best time for 5k and 10k and now training for my half marathon.  They have an offer now but I paid alot more....  money well spent... . .http://bbf1364n--w0fzeiuejftgey0m.hop.clickbank.net/

Not quite. I was sixth last or so during my first ever 10k a week ago; four did not finish. Ended up about 2 minutes slower than I'd hoped but still got a new PR. Problem for me was a serious storm pretty much all the race from front or side which constantly pulled my legs away. Was good fun though. Still was a bit annoyed about the time and ran the same route again two days later during wonderful weather and was three minutes faster than at the race. Would not have improved my rank a lot, but I don't care. This is for me, not for others.

i've lost track of the amount of races I've come last in, some by choice though as I've run with folks who I knew would be last in 

One race which was the Wolverhampton marathon I actually got more support being last with a fellow runner than I did another year when I ran it my myself and didn't come last haha

Usually towards the back. Only once in my life have I finished in the top half (8th out of 17 in a XC a few years back) always get a good cheer towards the end though!

I was the last one to cross the finish line at Draycote water half marathon last Sunday - I did the distance and wasn't doing it for the time as this was just a practice run to see if I could do it! Will work on the time for the cheltenham half in sept !
