Well done!!! I did it on Sunday too in Durham. Was my first and did it in 36 minutes (though was beaten by both of my daughters aged 10 and 14!). My mates 12 year old did it in 21 minutes!!!!! We had some very boggy bits - some so bad the muddy water seeped through my trainers!!! I loved it and will definitely be doing it next year - the atmosphere was great. Was sad reading the reasons for people running though - one girl was running in memory of her mum and the girl only looked early 20's - another group of girls running in their friends memory who died age 26.

Its kind of given me the running bug and am going out with my 10 year old tonight for a run. I've never been good at running but do a lot of cardio classes at the gym and think that really helped.
