Interesting Steve, I E mailed the organiser about the distance and was told the course was measured the day before and if anything it may have been slightly over ??
I'll be using the Garmin from now on, but not at this race as the results are just numbers and placings without names or times, not a lot of good to those people who forgot their numbers
After sales service is lacking with this one !
Agreed Terence, I think this is the 3rd year of this race, should be getting it right by now. The majority of people who run these races do so knowing full well they won't win it, so are trying to beat PB's or fellow competitors of similar ability etc, without such basic information as names and times displayed what is the point of ' results ' in this form. All the information was requested on the entry forms so could easily have been used. Five of us ran this year and that's five that won't be entering next year.
Such a shame as I have already said, it could easily have been a great event and is for a great cause.
I think the distance was ok too Stuart, I've since run the Lym 10k and did another sub 40 so my time on this race seems about right.
