that swansea 5k looks like a terrible race... ~500 people in a 5k?!... shocking... would be better to do a handicap race with fewer people ~50... a handicap race is where the starting times is based on your PB on the course so everyone has equal chance of winning...

It can't have been that bad Mr C., you got a PB:)

Congrats to you and Rob
Thanks Steve ,i spoke to one of the organisers of the above race (which i've never entered before) He told me that there had been a huge number of enter on the day runners .

I t's the first 5k i've ever entered so had no idea of the size of the field .

I have recently moved house and this race was virtually on my doorstep so i thought well why not,let's see how it goes !

The way i look at it is if 500 people are prepared to put on their running gear and have a crack well good on them !

It may not suit some people but thats life!;):)

ok, fair enough... i can relate to that... i guess i'm just lucky that my local 5k race is a low key affair... it is great being able to walk just up the road to get there... if it was missions to get to the race i doubt i'd enter at all !...

it is a very impressive time... especially considering that it was your first attempt at the course and that you were running with a hords of people... congratulations :cool:
