Here we go again!!
Right then - lets hear from the men and women who are man enough to tackle the beast !!
No rain for 2 weeks, so I reckon the going will just be plain muddy....
Least the pubs are open after
1st time running it so no idea how it compared to previous years -but pretty muddy i parts.
Anyone know where the results are posted - sure I heard the tannoy announce that they would be available this evening from" xyz" website and then early next week form SEAAA
I think I heard that they'll be on the Power of 10 site, poss this evening.
Spot on with the muddy in parts, although other bits were pretty dry & firm.
Tough day out anyway.
James - that IS mental!!
Hope you all had a good day out!! Pretty good underfoot today for a change!
James is right - you can waste a lot of time trying to pick your way through, and often it's a little firmer right in the middle. Relatively good conditions, but it's all relative - it was still very heavy going in parts.
The announcer said they'd be on the Power of 10 website, but they're not yet. Presume they've had a problem with them, as with full team declarations weeks in advance and chip timing, it shouldn't take long.
Quite a fun race, but I don't really enjoy it as much as other XCs - it feels like what XCs would be like if they were actually the BUPA Great Parliament Hill Run - long lead times for registration, expensive, and a start that looked like they'd consulted with Heathrow to see how they could piss everyone off most effectively.
Yep, really good fun again. As muddy as always!
Although not anywhere near a lead runner, the person with the starting gun should be shot (pardon the pun). I could still see loads of runners going through the tent when the gun was fired and the comments of some of the faster ones as they overtook on the first hill were not polite!
Results are on SEAA website.
Everyone knew the start time and should have know that the gun goes off right on queue or it screws the timing up. If you where not through the tent ahead of the start time only have yourself (or team manager) to blame.
Shame it is the last 15Km at Parliament Hill as SEAA are dropping the distance to 12Km.
James - I was through but the queue through the tent was unexpected - previous years didn't snake back and forth. i'm sure timing is started by gun not 2.50 GMT
