Agreed-for a first effort that was an exceptionally well organised race.

Interim results were available on a screen at the finish as the runners were still coming in-first time I've seen that done.They were also pinned to the wall of the race HQ very shortly afterwards and I'm sure they'll be on the website very soon.

The air cadets were superb.As well as all the water stations en route,they were coming round and topping up our water cups at the finish-and also handing out free jaffa cakes !

I think I was one of the last to set off,at about 25 past 9,and agree that it was tough.I was pleased with 2.13 and hope this race becomes an annual event.

Phillip - The time I have put on here is my Garmin time.

Those jaffa cakes were a nice touch.  I hope this race is back again next year as it is perfect for FLM training.

A20 Pathway Run Results Are In...

The results for the A20 pathway run are in.. well online, I am uploading the photos as I write this  so they should be online shortly.  They are courtesy of one our friends who came down to see us and we roped in to taking the pictures.

Sorry for the delay, we had issues collecting some new timing equipment from heathrow and I have been home the grand sum of 30 minutes

Results are in the usual section and the photos are in the gallery.  Don't forget to tag your photo with its race number.

I just noticed I uploaded the photos in landscape mode so if you hang of five minutes they should be fixed

Thanks to the organisers for a very enjoyable race and specific mention to all the race marshals who stayed out as well as those marshalling the drinks tables. I hope it runs again next year.

FLM reject - how did your race go?

A good event, but I started a few minutes behind the main pack and it was painful going overtaking  the IPOD listeners and joggers running 2 or 3 abreast along a narrow path. So, the organisers might like to tell the faster runners to start first next time. However, my fault this time- I should have known better.

The water stations were very good, but the one at about half way after a 90 degree right was too soon after the turn to be of any use  at pace, so more got spilt than drunk.

The marshalling was indifferent. During the last 5 miles, one marshal was chatting on his phone when he should have been protecting the junction from emerging tractors.  Another lady was chatting to a group and I had negotiate my own way across a wide junction with cars everywhere. However, there was one marshal lady doing a brill job near the petrol station. These marshals were not runners and din't understand what was expected of them.

Due to the nature of the event as a time trial, we had to wait forever for the last runner to come in before the prize giving and I still didn't win a sausage and didn't deserve one.
