The guy who won Salisbury (Harry Smith), is ranked 200th at 5k for 2022, his best time of the year is 14:45.

I managed my best ever finish, 2nd this week at Penryn Campus in 21:38, over 4 minutes behind 1st place.

Very hungover trot around Bevendean today, but I was first in my age group for the first time!

I'm staying in Tooting next Friday night, can anyway recommend a parkrun in that part of London?

Cheers Golf....!
It was the strangest feeling finally managing to claim the No. 1 token. For the entire run I couldn't quite believe I was at the front. Heartlands is a very twisty turny course so you get plenty of opportunities to see the chasing pack, I was expecting someone to start closing the gap, but as each lap passed the gap grew. Although I could have eased off at the end I pushed on to try and claim a "Course Wars" gold, but you still have that honour by 5 seconds!

I have now run Heartlands on three occasions and each time the course has been slightly different. I almost went wrong at the first turn (Ken's Corner), last time it was 180 degree turn, but this time only a 90 degree turn.

Well done Soup Dragon on 1st place. The only time I'll get my hands on a "0001" token is when I'm handing them out when volunteering!

Felixstowe for me this weekend - flat and a good surface, but way too hoy for my liking. Still beat my best time for years by a few seconds.

I know it's only a fun role and nobody should expect professional pacing, but Hove Prom should be piss easy to pace, unless there was a really strong wind.
Just run even splits and use a running watch to keep you in pace with the target time.
