They did last year.
Anyone doing the Barry Waterfront (Ty Hafan) 5k in May?
I just started a thread if anyone is interested
Just finished this race, I am some what suprised by my time. If my stopwatch is correct I finished in about 19' 12. My pb was set last week during the blackfriers 5k time trail which was 20' 06. It says on the runners world website that the course was measured and certified. Did anyone check the distance using thier garmin or any other type of course distance measuring watch. If anyone can help it would be most appreciated.
I havent stopped smiling yet
Robert - you've got me thinking now, i got my 1st 5k time of 25.36 at the time trial last saturday... today i got 25.05 according to my hrm but it felt like i was running slower today than last week
perhaps the distance wasnt right if i can easily knock 30 seconds off my time in a week??
There seems to be a general concensus that the course was about 3m not 3.1m
Bad form, considering this was a welsh championship event and an U23 international !
Pity really, as it was a well organized event apart from this...mmm, it's gonna tough to beat this PB !
Aww - I was so proud of mesself......
Never mind - tis still beatable .......
Im talking like a runner now - tisnt good, is it.....!!
I thought the course was the same as last year wasn't it?
If it was, I still shaved two minutes off my time - v pleased!
Enjoyed the race.
Apparently it was 220m too short.
The lead car took a wrong turn at about 3k, and cut out 220m, so last year was correct.
I think it's fair to extrapolate your time based on the 4780m to make it 5k.
For me I added 48 secs to my 17:31 to make 18:19. so a new PB woo hoo !
Cancer run in Bute Park next weekend, anyone?
Just found some excellent photos of the race - see http://www.flickr.com/photos/22994830@N07/sets/72157604026285917/

How not to be in any photos - follow the dragon all the way around (probably just as well, I'm not good in photos normally and I doubt would be any better by the end of that.....)
