Afternoon all

just out of interest how longs the race been going i know from what Yvonne told me that it’s at least 3 years i only ask as she said for the last 3 years it has rain and so the water stations aren’t quite as important so they may not have had to deal with that short of heat especially in October you just don’t expect it


This may be part of a learning curve for them and if anyone knows the organizers perhaps they could suggest that if it were that hot again a couple of extra table with water on them may be an idea i must agree about the price that what first caught my eye plus it was only an hour down the road

water for me wasn’t such a problem as i wore my camelbak

ie, follow the old 2010 results link from the cricklade website, and just check for new results.

I hear what you are saying about extra water. The reality though is that it's not as easy as you suggest to put an extra station in at last minute notice - it requires another 2-3 marshalls, tables, etc. And you cant just shift the existing 4 stations to fit in an equal distance between either. So you'd end up with 2 stations in close proximity, which means runners would likely bypass one.

Its one hot day in decades, don't think the rule book should be ripped up for it. They were extraordinary circumstances, and probably won't happen again for another 32 years.
