    Re: Four Villages Half Maratho

    I've just looked at these results, and i must admit, the standard in this race is piss poor. Only 45 people managed to run sub 80 mins (3%), which you would class as a recognised time, and 220 ran under 90 mins (15%), which is a 'reasonable' time. Has standards slipped that bad, or are all the decent runners resting for next week, inter regional cross country races?

    It's nice to know that I'm neither 'recognised' nor 'reasonable'.

    Re: Four Villages Half Maratho

    So how many people, in what is a very popular race, the week before a more important race for a lot of runners, would you expect to break 80 minutes?

    I expect Brendan may be looking at a 'Great Cheshire Half' soon...

    Before that we all got PBs.

    The course has changed since I ran my PB of 1.18.14 in 1992.
    Must be much tougher now - I see Tony Hulme DNF.
    How did forumites get on?

    Had a mare. Must do training.

    I happen to agree with Chaddy, even if I wouldn't nominate him for diplomat of the year. I've run 1.16 on that course and came 75th. This year I was 6 minutes slower, but only slipped 15 places. The general standard of fields is slowing (and getting older)

    Re: Four Villages Half Maratho

    I have to agree, the standards of road running are slipping. more joe joggers and not enough people sticking themselves on the line and willing to push themselves.
    Why organise a run so close to a major cross country, no wonder the standards in this race are so poor.

    thought that was what joe was for to help you train.. i didn't think you did that bad to be honest, don't worry if it doesn't after all monkey will beat you and that lazy rabbit as well as shane by the end of the year. after all he did look quite strange in his tights last night as one passer by said.. ######
