In short: What happened with the results? In full: To repeat what I said on the forum:
On the online entry form, there were fields for club name and corporate team. Plus a field to enter your employer's name (to do with charitable donations I believe).
I think that if you entered your employer details, it has put this into "corporate team" and wiped out club name. God knows how or why. Even the race winner appeared to have no club, but be running for the Post Office!
This is very annoying as we like to round up all our results for club night announcements. This year we had quite a few new members running in club vests for the first time, and it's hard to find their positions and times (and they don't get to see their result as a club runner - quite a buzz when you're new to it).
And at least one of our runners is entirely absent from the results - and he ran a PB!
In short: The sweet smell of success In full: My first go at it, and given that I was running on a injury (don't try this at home, kids) I was pleasantly surprised with my 20:46. I think these races might be better if run in the winter, though. Warm weather + sewage works = not pleasant.... Date of review: May 3, 2007
In short: An ever-reliable PB course, well organised. In full: My race was lifted by a couple of "celebs" - Jane Tomlinson starting us off, and Nell McAndrew chasing me (never thought I'd be able to say *that*!) to the finish. Lovely weather and a PB. I'll be back next year, hopefully a bit nearer to my 40 minute Holy Grail. Date of review: February 5, 2007
In short: Tough one In full: My first attempt at the GF. I had been warened about its "undulating" nature - and it lived up to it. Very congested at the start, but I was making up the time quite well until I hit "heartbreak hill" at mile 5, and never quite back on track after that. Good training for the nice, flat Abbey Dash 10k in a couple of weeks though! Will definitely be back next year. Date of review: November 6, 2006
In short: Always good for a pb. In full: Forgot about the fact that it's slightly uphill for the first half so my strategy for a sub-45 mins went slightly astray. Still a 45.37 pb though, and I'll be back next year (injuries permitting!) Date of review: February 7, 2006
