I didn't notice, I'm a bit of a dufus like that, I notice nothing. (gf dyed her hair red once and I didn't notice - ooops!). I just noticed the beep and that they had a full marathon number on.

Recognised the bleep though, it was a Garmin telling you you're running too fast/not fast enough.

Oh yeah, they had earbuds in too so probably couldn't even hear it themselves. I noticed that because I was going to speak to them but realised they'd probably not even notice.

I didn't hear it after I stopped for a walk break at 5miles so they either finished ahead of me (in the top 10) or realised and turned it off before I caught and passed them.

Forgot to ask. Who had the Garmin that was going off every 20secs or so?

I was running with them for a while around 4 miles but it was driving my batty. That's when I decided a walk break every 5 miles was a good plan. Gave the noise a chance to go away.

Damn it's taken longer than the race and longer than uploading Bryans 1700 photo's but I've finally finished my race report (just going to add a link to Bryans pic site, sorry if I scared you shouting "BOO!!!" on the first lap )

If anybody is REALLY bored you can find it here - http://bit.ly/kYM9A

Quite glad that all you established runners though it was a tough course because I got a pb

Next running for me is The Doone Run down here in Devon and 'hopefully' Cornish Marathon in November, there certainly won't be a pb there.

PS - If somebody knows Jez Bragg (number 2360) tell him he'd have been battling for the win if he could sort his toilet issues out

Just seen mine too. Cracking

I really must stop acting the arse infront of the camera though, it makes me look like such a fool and does nothing to promote a decent running gait.

Brilliant pics Bryan.

Ooops, chill all. It's just a run

But can I just say "Damn you Barnsley Runner". I wanted to be the first finisher wearing leggings  (same page but 2mins later)

Hi all

I was out there playing yesterday. It was (almost) great fun.

The provisional results certainly showed the 1st lady at 3:11 although now they've changed.

Barnsley Runner came in at 2:54. Was there a woman just behind you?

I throw a link up once I've got round to bloggin my race report. Also slightly confused by the off road diversions, they would have been interesting if it had been wet like last year.

 Well done to all that finished any of the race

Feeling quite glad I didn't enter now. Did a 40mile bike ride with a 20mile downpour instead so can imagine how bad it was over there. FA I feel your pain with the Raynaud's, took me 30mins sat in the car with the heat on full to get my fingers back after Grizzly just so that I could get my shoes off.

Well done all, looks to have been a real gruesome day out there.

 I guess Vicky S must have decided against it after seeing the weather forecast as only a couple of weeks ago she was trying to get me to enter so that we could car share.

PS - You're all mad

Just woke up and you lot will already be running. Perfect conditions for a long run here in Barnstaple so hopefully that stretches across the Moors to you lot.

Have a cracking race folks.
