Rowan do you know when the pics and official times for last Saturday will be on ? I appreciate your busy like the rest of us so no rush , just a quick question

times should go up over weekend - lady who does it all got day off tomorrow so will hope to get sorted.

 photographs - we had Echo and freelance last year but not this year - this year we had just one of the cricketers doing it - will try and get some up on the web-site over the weekend.

 hope a report and photos will go in the Echo in next few days.

Results and pix still not up.....

Any news?

Just for the record, I love this event (having run the original years ago).

 Sorry - not yet! I can do pictures but waiting for results - the lady is swamped with work as well but will do when she gets a chance!

Not many that have done the race in the 20th and 21st century - makes about 4 that I know now! 

 I hope the race has legs (pardon the pun) and can get up to 250 -300 runners each year.

Hi Rowan

Ok, I'll try to be be patient  Weirdly I think I came seventh when I ran it in the 20th c and seventh again last year.  I might have even improved this year.  It's such a fantastic race though - I love these low-key, uncommercial, local races, with quirky routes.  Still very well organised, though - smooth as silk on the day.

I will tell my mum as it was her idea many many years ago!

 We learned a lot from the first race last year (more drinks stations, finish in cricket club etc) but still mad panic in few days up to the race to make it look like we are organised! we raised over £500 for Tewkesbury Hospital from the race which was good!

 I like the description of quirky for the route - went around a few local races drumming up support and cross country seems to be a dirty word nowadays!

Seventh is still seriously good running - my aim is to beat an hour next year (if train really hard could get under 50 minutes - built for cricket and golf not for running!)

Still waiting ......
27/09/2011 at 17:52

and me ...

(don't want to chase too much as lady who has had info has recently lost job and her mum just had car accident!) but again been promised that it will be ready this evening!!!

Some things are worth the wait..

Ive entered the birmingham half in october now so got a little run in last night
28/09/2011 at 07:53

Ok, Rowan.  I'll try to be patient..... If you can, would you mind posting here when the results are up as then I'll get a notification?

Thanks

Results tend to be as important to club runners as marshalls or water stations.  I think this should go down on your lessons to be learned list. Don't just rely on one person being able to publish the results on your website.

Thanks

I have to agree with Matt.  If the event is to succeed (which I believe it deserves to - it's a great course, an unusual distance, and very congenial) then getting accurate and speedy results out is a must, particularly as we all pay good money to run, and some (not me) come quite a distance.  I could understand if this was the London Marathon, but there were only a few dozen runners, and collating these on a spreadsheet is a couple of hours work at most.. 

Another thing that could go on the lessons-to-be-learned list is to source numbers that don't fall to bits

embarrassed by delay  - very sorry, thanks for your patience! was fairly quick last year - if the server is working the results should be up on the web-site soon.

 sticky numbers will be sorted ( looks like we have lost a couple of runners' times as they lost their numbers

we will get better

05/10/2011 at 08:02
Small problem - I appear to be missing from the list.  If it helps, I was 6th or 7th (I think) just behind a runner from Gloucester AC in around 43m +
05/10/2011 at 09:10

out of all the people that I did not the timers to miss .... sorry!

i will add you on the site when I get a chance (makes you 6th i think)

05/10/2011 at 12:45

Edward,

I was the Gloucester AC runner just ahead of you (only 2 of us on the day and the other was further down the field), and I finished 7th - which obviously makes you 8th.  I hope this helps!

05/10/2011 at 13:47

Cheers Omar.  You were parked next to me in the car park, I think...  I was certainly in front of Dave Spackman, though that hasn't always been the case

Looking forward to next year.
