The 'official' thread. Of course.
Anyone hear anything about how the girl (that got barbed wire stuck in her leg) is? Hope she's doing ok - assume she had to go to hospital for a tetanus?
Never really seemed to get going today - got stuck in a crocodile in the woods and then it was too fast for me on the flat and flatish sections once everyone spread out. Still - it's all good fun and good training! Hope the next one is a bit hillier - suits me better!
Unlucky on the shoe SG - you're having a shoe-drama season really aren't you! I only saw one other person wrestling one back on (in the sucky mud section down the side of the field). Was glad for the tip offs - had tied triple knots just in case!
Sleepy Bear - I saw the lady at the end that got the wire stuck in her leg and heard her say she was okay, not sure if she needed to go to hospital in the end!
I had a good run today, really enjoyed it, well apart from that energy sapping field near the end it certainly seems to slow your pace down a bit. I was quite happy though as took nearly 6 minutes off of my time last year
I also agree with Sleepy Bear that SG is definitely have a shoe drama, after reading your posts about Handy Cross and now Tadley
Enjoyed Tadley today - good to meet SB and nice to have a chat with Ben about HR monitors which has me thinking about trying them again if I can find the one I bought years ago.
Slower times for me in this year's races - think it's just the other work i'm doing at the moment which really isn't conducive to fast racing at the weekends. The events are no less enjoyable though. Oh, and Sunderland got through to round 4 so that's good!!
See you all at Bracknell.
Was the field much faster this year? I think I was only 12 seconds faster than last year, which is not on par with this season so far .
Still, sounds like you all had a good outing.
Bracknell falls on the same day as my son's brithday, so I won't be there. That makes Tadley my last race as I'll be marshalling at the Finch race. Hopefully at the bottom of the big hill
C2 - that's good news thanks - poor thing - it must have been sore! The chap in front of me in the first set of woods got his foot tangled in something but it looked like just fencing wire. Wonder if that was the end of it? One of our ladies heard her scream and then someone else pulled it out for her. Apparently it was caught in her calf. Bleurgh - doesn't bear thinking about...
Hurrays all round for everyone going faster than last year and just generally having a nice morning!
Extra hurray for upcoming hills
Nice to see you too oscarr. Sorry we had to scarper - the perils of dog ownership
Maybe we should start calling SG Cinderella LOL.
Just seen the official results. 1s faster than last year (vs my Garmin). Definitely an off-day as I was 3:24 faster at Sandhurst vs last year.
We're 6th overall.
Feels odd to be surprised by Reading winning the event, as for the last infinite years they've been right up there.
Powerhouse women's performance, 1st, 3rd and 4th!
Our top 4 men were slightly ahead on aggregate from their top 4, both clubs had a top 8 man from the last race missing, but the 5th and 6th places were crucial.
I think it's guaranteed, that'll be Datchet's lowest finish of the season, 9th! None of their top 6 turned up!
My old gang Marlow, 5th overall! terrific result...best I can remember in 6 years. I should probably move on quickly though having transferred over to the SJ

I refer the honourable gentleman to my previous comment (county champs) and as soon as a few go, it is a house of cards.
I didn't know Datchet was in Kent And you didn't say the whole lot were out!
That fella has an interesting track record... 1hr 15 half, sub 2min 800metre, but hardly anything on the board in the last 5 or 6 years!
6th place for me yesterday which I was chuffed about, feels good to beat Sandhurst.
Evening roadrunna Roy Your flying, and did very well for the team yesterday
