Hi if anybody has a place for this and can no longer enter please let me know! I will collect from anywhere and have cash ready!!

Can I please ask - as Race Entry Co-ordinator - that if anyone is thinking of swapping numbers that they message me on here by Thursday lunchtime.

Running under someone else's name is risky on H&S grounds and also I think against UKA rules.

 I know there are quite a lot of disappointed people out there but the closing date has been advertised from the start and the race has been live since well before Christmas.

Thank you

this would happen!

+1 on the above.

The marshalls were as always the best.  Great goodie bag too...  Thanks to everyone who put this on together - another Thanet success....   How you managed to arrange a 21 minute PB I really don't know, particuarly on what has become an interesting but undulating course...

Top race! Many thanks to the organisers. Got to agree about the marshalls, loads of them, andd all very cheerful considering that they had been standing around in the cold, wind and drizzle for hours!

PSC, are you Ashford tri?

Cheers TRR, excellent job, I enjoyed the course even more than I did in 2009.

I hope those that I passed after mile 17 on their way out didn't get too wet or cold, it looked like the weather was getting progressively worse after midday?

Well done all and thanks for the kind words - the weather did get worse but thankfully not as bad as today!

Well done Thanet RAC excellent course, enjoyed every minute (I had a lot to enjoy), very challenging well worth the trip down. Marshalls made it all worth while, and most would have been frozen/wet by the end - Well done. also thanks to the organisers.

Could I just mention that my envelope only contained my number, no instructions of any sort.

I haven't read any other comments like that so perhaps it was a one off, at least I knew where I was going anyway.

See you later in the year for the Coastal 1/2.
