My Burnsall 10 mile time of 1:32:04 would have given me second place in the M80 rankings (runbritainrankings.com) for 2012 - but alas, it transpires the race was not UKA registered. Looks like I may have to run another! Spit!!!!!

Cracking run Gordon. You ran the time, that's what matters, and I'm sure you'll do it again.

Hi Gordon, That is great going. As everthing is in metrics in this part of the world, I calculate that you did 5.75 min per km for your 10mile run. You must be pleased with that!
I ran a 5k Parkrun in Australia last weekend whilst on holiday and intend to do another in NZ this weekend now that I am back home. I was really impressed with the organisation and the concept of the runs. Do you know where they originated?

Fox, you're a legend. Hope you managed to get another race in!

And parkrun started in London..go to the parkrun website for a history...there's something like 170 in the UK at the moment

Amazing running, awesome time - such a shame about it not giving you the ranking you so very much deserve! Maybe you can go for No 1 on the next one :)
You are a true inspiration, Boothy!

The Fox is my Role Model

Greetings from down under fellow ancients. As Gordon is still older than I and running very successfully, there is no reason for me to hang up the running shoes and use the excuse that it is a younger person's lifestyle. I finally ran my half-marathon & injury free, last weekend and was happy with my time of 1.55. This is the 1st half marathon that I have been in for more than a decade and it was a lot of effort but still fun. Sure the hills seemed steeper, the kilometers seemed longer but I just put that down to my need for stronger glasses! Just an optical illusion!
It is so long since I raced that distance that I was on a mini "high" for days afterwards. A little muscle sore too but that has passed and I am thinking "what next".

Cunning Running?

Hi Eopocean11, I had a look at those links and they are Orienteering as you would know. I haver never tried my hand at that (or should I say never tried my foot at that?) I see the events are in Hawkes Bay too. Curiouser & Curiouser! I am currently in Otago for a couple of weeks but returning to Northland before Xmas. I am looking a doing a Parkrun again in Auckland on my way through as 2 weeks have now elapsed since the half marathon and I'm feeling a slightly:lol: frisky again.
Maybe Orienteering is worth a look?

Go for it Mick! Fastest runner doesn't always win - the one who can find the quickest way
and as you're concentrating on the route the time slips by - it's a wonderful sport
