    1988, 4.40, did slightly more training than that racsist Goody, and 'enjoyed' my NITAT training that started on the following Monday at Lydd with the RHF!
     
  3. 9 times so far, did 2.52 in 1997 and my latest was 3.09. I am old now!
     
  4. 5.01 in 2006 . Mutter mutter screwed up on the day, mutter ould have done 4.00
     
  5. 4 times. 2.52 ('98), 2.26 ('99), 3.38 ('00), 2.31 (01'). Do it, it's a great day even if you run poorly. First year I ran it rained most of the day... which was nice. Third time I was a fat knacker! Training time you ask? That depends on your fitness when you start and your willingness to apply yourself. 12-16 weeks as a guide.
