Perkins Great Eastern Run

Peterborough, Cambridgeshire
The Perkins Great Eastern Run in Peterborough is one of the fastest growing half marathons in the Country, attracting record numbers of participants to its flat, fast historic city centre route - great for a personal best. Superb spectator support in residential areas and at the finish line; top prize money for winners; free entertainment for spectators at the start and finish area.

In short:
90 sec PB on a wet and miserable yet glorious day!

In full:
Pretty much a pancake flat course and a well-organised event (aside from understaffed baggage tents). My new Garmin watch (Forerunner 30) was not very reliable for pacing, so went by feel and really chuffed to stay very close to my target pace of 6:30/m all the way round except for a tiny fade at the end. Woke up at 1:30am the next morning sill on a high and couldn't get back to sleep! Next stop Rother Valley marathon...
