Hi STFC, have you still got a spare entry for this event ?
The weather seems to be getting worse and worse, keeping my fingers crossed for nice weather (anything than rain and strong winds).
Can't believe it's almost here, think I signed up pretty soon after I found out I had a place in VLM. Not looking forward to the crowds/traffic jams but I want to do it at least once. Once I have that medal in my hand I'll be happy!
looking forward to this as it'll be nice to do my LSR's with people for a change as all of my VLM prep has been on my own so far!
Does anyone know if it's possible to add on a few miles within the compounds or am I going to have to go outside and off down some country lanes?
Well folks, I leave Fife in an hour to travel down. I might see some of you there! Look out for this t-shirt on raceday:
How did everyone do then ?
Bit windy wasn't it ?!!
agreed, it doesnt look as good as it does on TV and it was V WINDY! Enjoyed myself nonetheless made a nice change from doing an LSR on my own and a nice change to go a bit quicker than LSR pace, even if it hurt a bit by mile 11
Hope you all got the times you were looking for.
I've not done VLM but Reading is a bigger half (in terms of runners) half and it is much busier. I imagine London is far worse than both.
Always makes me smile though that come mile 10 theres plenty of room!
Well done everyone.
This was my 3rd time here and was hoping for under 2.00. Garmin said 1:59:58 so v-happy.
Does any one know when the official reults will be on. Think I got a pb - want to be sure!
Good race - plenty of space, good weather (if a bit windy) and plenty of drinks. I got 2hrs, happy with that.
Still no results that I can see either
parking was a bit poorly organised, took me about an hour to get out. Nevermind, well done all.
My Garmin forefunner 50 made it 14.2miles! I had calibrated it as well. I did do an awful lot of ducking and weaving past people as I started near the back - could this have made up a whole mile or is it on the blink?!
Great day though
NickP & Ben - my Garmin was about .15 early every mile. Crossed finish line with 13.3.
Didn't think much to the course to be honest - running on the race track was a novelty and well worth doing though. There was also a complete lack of atmosphere - doubt I'll be doing this one again.
And that fact the results aren't up yet is pretty bad - I've received text messages from lower-key races in the past before now...
