Report from Chris Carver:
This morning I ran the Leeds Hyde Park version for a change.
I finished eleventh out of 209 and my time was 18:17 (this represents an age graded time of 16:27 which easily betters my previous best of 17:28 from June 2009).
18:17 also betters easily my previous M45 pb of 19:15 also form June 2009.
In fact I have only once ran faster than 18:17 and that was in November 1998 on a hilly route around Bowling Park, Bradford when I managed 17:53.
