In short: Delay explained. Please see below In full: Hello to everyone who took part and thank you for entering. There were two reasons for the delayed start and they were announced, but many will not have heard due to the wind. The first problem was caused simply by the number of entrants, we had nearly 40% more than last year, and many of those were in the last few days. So we were overwhelemd with those who had entered late and who had to pick up their numbers on the day, and those who wanted to enter late.
Once we had cleared that we found that about half a dozen motorists had found their way onto the course and they had to be cleared. We didn't have any option but to do that. So, a very big sorry for the hanging around and we will do our best to avoid those things happening again next year.
Meanwhile I'm off to find out who the girls were at mile 11!
Best wishes and thak you all for the kinder comments.
