2:45 off a 35:18 10k will be a tough target, but not completely out of the question if OMOC has built up his endurance. Maintaining 6:15 pace for the last 6 miles will be a test of mental strength! 2:55 however seems too pessimistic.
At least some people will be happy that the sun is forecast to be replaced by showers and grey skies over the week-end.
Just looked at GG results - well done to OMOC for being first SHAC runner home, and to BB for nearly winning v50 despite being at the wrong end of that age category. And Jayne for winning ladies race. Good performances all round too.
My Trafford time was 37:30. That's 2+ minutes down on the last time I ran this race, but what I expected on around 25 mpw. The v50 winner ran a ridiculous 31:30 (but was only 40th overall), giving RB something to think about.
