Hi Sprint,

Any update on the results? We all appreciate the combined efforts going in to the server move, etc. However this is seriously impeding my 2nd claim club banter!

Results until the site goes live - apologies from BFR - working as quick as we can !

Who's ready for a very wet, muddy XC tomorrow! Decided to get my spikes out ready

will be there for a rare run out. No spikes tho, just the trusty Walshes.

The course could be interesting tomorrow, a bit like doing the Grim Challenge! Really looking forward to it. I wonder if 400 runners will turn up again!

How did everyone get on today? I found it really tough and ran a slower time than last year, but I was pleased considering the conditions, and enjoyed running through all the water and mud. My OH had a good run and finished in the top 10 which was great I saw one guy from DD run through one of the puddles, fall over got completely covered, I asked if he was ok and he said I shouldn't have done that ha ha

Claire, i did similar, monstered into a puddle thinking it'd be fine, and it coming up to my neck, and having to swim out!

Snuck 5th place tho, so happy with that!

Although I should probably change my pic to the club i represent these days!

19th place after going over in a ditch and cutting knee open was good for me - fitness is lacking but warm and bandaged now . Possibly one ditch should have been re routed IMHO
25/11/2012 at 15:56
Some of those puddles were definitely deeper than they looked! And muddy underneath too! Well done on 5th place! You must have been running near my OH at times
I really enjoy these races, it's nice to chat with runners from other clubs

Sprint, there were some pretty hairy bits, i tried to go round most, but sometimes you have to go spark through!

Conditions were certainly worse than 2010 when I last raced this one, did it a min quicker that day despite being less fit!

Claire, depends if your OH was one of the 2 in front of me, i think they were Reading.

I'm not quite sure exactly who was behind, it's the fear of that which keeps you working hard!

Miss the next one, which I'm not too sad about as it's the destroying Handy Cross one!

Stevie yes he was one of the Reading guys, he finished in 2nd place, he had a great run, he was worried about his achilles playing up but it was ok. That's a shame you will miss handy cross that reminds me more of a fell race with those hills!

Sprint sorry to hear you fell and hurt yourself
25/11/2012 at 16:21

you should have said top 2 rather than top 10!

Presume he was the younger chap then, as the other Reading guy ahead of me is V40. You don't look that age, so presumably the younger chap!

Long and short of it, was Graham won it comfortably, there was a little gang of 4 of us chasing, then I lost the 3 of them,  and had a little battle with another guy and just about stole it  on the line.

25/11/2012 at 16:36
Nice of you to say I don't look that age and your right I'm not I am a bit younger, but OH is V 40 sorry I said he was top 10 when top 2 . We did see some pictures and it did look like the guy in 1st had a bit of a lead.
25/11/2012 at 16:44

are his initials LN?

I checked his power of 10 profile, and he seems to be building a head of steam as the year progresses!

80mins at the Marlow half in the worst conditions ever, probably promises a 75-76 elsewhere....

25/11/2012 at 16:58
Yes that's correct he has had a very good year training wise, very consistent. He is hoping to get closer to those times on a flat fast half, so fingers crossed. he is also quite strong on the hills as we have both done some fell races this year as well as the Marlow Hm!
