I'm also hoping just to get round, my achilles/ankle is still not 100% and I'm supposed to be doing the Tiptree 10 next Sunday. Also hoping the wind drops for tomorrow, it's really blowy out there where I am let alone along the seafront!
Fantastic race, really well organised and a great atmosphere. Bit blowy going out but that's what seafronts are all about I guess. And it could've been a lot worse, given Saturday's weather.
I managed to track down the results already via powerof10 (athletics data). I don't want to be too critical because the organisation was outstanding, but it does appear that 10/11 secs has been added on to most people's chip time for the official time - given that I was standing on the start line when the hooter sounded, this is clearly a discrepancy. Anyone know if this is likely to be amended?
PhilPub, I'll be annoyed if that is the case because my watch time 49.56 and a PB. If they put me officially outside 50 minutes I'll cry foul!
Other than that, though, they did a pretty good job of organising things, I thought.
Oooh I'm annoyed too! Just checked that results site and it's added 1 min and 4 seconds to my Garmin time! More than 10/11 seconds for me!!! It's still a PB but takes some of the shine of it.....
I thought the start was way too congested. I ran in the cycle lane for the first kilometre or so as I was just tripping up over people. Anyway I won't winge anymore!! Well done everyone!!!
Totally agree about the discrepency. My garmin time was 42.25, chip time 42.22 and gun time 42.36!! I know I started my garmin about 1 sec after the gun went off, and that the clock said 42.28 as I ran under it at the end.
Hmmmmmm. Well, I am definitely logging it as a sub 42.30.
I was just pleased to make it round! My achilles started aching after about 5k so didn't set the world alight with my time but happy enough with it. Still debating if I'm fit enough to run the Tiptree 10 this weekend......
I normally only pay attention to the chip time (if available) btw....
(I'll have a go at him next time I see him. )
