Can I find it?
I've got a time in my head for a 10K race when I was in my prime... which was my PB (never to be beaten!) - nothing special, but just better than 6 minute miles.
Then I read something last month where it said "runners will often have stories of great times, like a 38 minute 10K... but they'll never have proof".
OMG I thought... that's me! (though I was a bit better than 38 mins). I bet no one believes me. Maybe I don't believe me - it's a long time ago!
I did have a print out of my time... but I've lost it. I'd love to see proof. I contacted the current race organisers... and they kindly had a look.. and said that they had electronic records going back quite a few years, but unsurprisingly not back to the eighties.
So... I just wondered if there are any avid record keepers on here, who maybe kept results from Ribble Valley 10Ks from that era. I'm not even sure of the year. I could make a small donation to a charity of the choice of the first person to give me my time!
I'd rather deal with real names by PM... the first question is whether I'm lucky enough to find someone who perhaps ran in the RV10K a few times in the eighties, and happens to be the sort who keeps results sheets.

Blackburn harriers have a decent website, why not try them ?
Thanks Dave... I did that, and they kindly had a dig around. Their electronic records go back to the nineties, not eighties. I think I'm going to have to hope I come across an enthusiast who doesn't throw things like that away! I'd have to be lucky.
