well done today everyone - results are now on the club website....
What a well organised event. Thanks to the fantastic marshalls for waiting for me! Well done Thanet Runners Club.
Great race! Pleased to come 5th in 2:02:49 - was on for sub 2hr (and 3rd) until about mile 15 when the wheels come off badly.The organisation and the marshalling were top notch - a really good job by all! Not so fond of the course though - few too many hills and sharp turns for my liking. The section off-road though was far worse - rutted, uneven and a right royal pain in the backside. Is there no way it could be avoided next year? It was unfitting for such an otherwsie brilliant race.
By coming off the path and running in the field next to it the surface was a bit better.
Thanks to the Thanet Roadrunners, apart from finding the last few miles a bit tough, I had a lovely morning running, and what a nice medal!
Great race but like others had a few problems with the football pitch and the orchard type area where the ground was very uneven and probably lost a minute or so. Was suffering with blisters at this point and this made it even worse!!
Apart from this I really enjoyed it, was quite a demanding route in places and tested me significantly over the last 3 miles.
Great prep for VLM and very happy with my 2.19.26 over such a course!
I'll be back next year.
