Sid reports on a poor day at the office:
As this is a flat course and the weather was ok, i was hoping to record a good time but from the off i was feeling flat, no bounce, also i was running without a watch, i like to time myself to sub 4 min kilometers and would have pushed harder if i new how far off the pace i was, although the number of people taking me over was an obvious indicator. First time info i got was at the 5k mark 20:37 , looking back at the same clock at 8k 33:47 so was slipping further off pace. Finish “gun time” 42:07……

[Thanks to Sid for his efforts in finding the results, our presence was limited this time but hopefully this popular event will attract a large turnout of VRUK members & supporters next time. Looking at the results, many clubs had huge turnouts].
