Selena - think it was 295 (bit down on last year - but busy time of year with Park Runs now, a tri the next day, a 10 k 3 miles away the next day and Cheltenham 1/2 the week after) as a few started but because of injuries could not finish.
Thanks John - i enjoy the bbq the best as well - burn off a few hundred calories then eat about 3 hot dogs straight after. The charity element is an important part of the race and will continue to be so as long as i am involved!
if all runners pre-registered and pre-paid the on the day admin would be a breeze but we are not going to turn people away unless we get to 500 registered and paid way before the race! ta to the 40-50 volunteers who gave up their time as well if you are reading this!
used to get email notifications of entries onto this thread but don't seem to anymore - else would have whacked up results earlier.
the chipped timing situation was beyond our control I am afraid - the guy who kindly did this for us last year had his young daughter seriously ill in the period up to the race and no way were we going to ask him to help in that situation - there are more important things than running! should have it back in operation next year!
hate not starting on time - apologies for that (mic going down did not help)
thanks for everyone that did run - important part of cricket club raising around £1500 for Wallace and Gromit Grand Appeal. we hope to get bigger and better next year. cheers!
