BB: I don't think you can really have a pb for this race since it changes every year. Having said that, although I think the course was shorter this year and thought I had a better run this year than last - I was only 1 second faster! So I think a 2 minute improvement is pretty good :>).
Sarah: If you keep at it you'll love the Race for Life (they are excellent) and then you'll enjoy Chester Walls too. I started with both these events and keep on doing them whilst doing other races too.
John: Thanks for posting the results - I love your sortable tables!
Gary - yesterday was a dream underfoot - my other-half who has done it around 20 times has never known it so dry (as opposed to last year which was pretty wet - last fields particularly so). I find that Walshes do help.
I agree with all - fab race and well-run. Still one of my favourites (judgement coloured by 10 minutes off my pb).
