I found the info a little confusing but from memory you have to collect your number in advance of the race. They do put on a good party though and there are performances throughout the afternoon and evening.
On race day they had buses which will bus you to the start line. However, i never did find out if they brought peoples stuff back so i traveled there in bits and pieces i was happy to leave at the start! You then run back and there is tapas and wine!
I did the 12.7km race and once i had finished and had chance to reflect i enjoyed it! At the start line there was no chip mat on the start line it, it was around back and you had to walk over it to activate your chip. So i am pretty sure that the chips all set off at the same time.
They are quite responsive on their fb though.
They do give you vouchers for tapas though which were ideal!

FIrst event was on the 24th May and results are showing on Power of 10.
