Stepping back a bit but just on centurion cut offs: at the tp2012 we staggered cuts to allow more time towards the end. From the sdw100 on, we've reverted to a system of even 3.3mph pacing throughout, at all 4 of our 100s. Hope that helps a little.
Gee bee, slane, your two performances were incredibly gutsy and gave me that spine tingling feeling as much as any of our winners from this year. The final finisher spot is just as impressive as winning, on a different but equally significant level.
Hi guys, thank you for all the comments, blog links and feedback. On the whole it seems that everybody enjoyed the race so we'll carry on working hard to put it on again in 2013. We had a great weekend and only just now coming back to earth.
Ultracas I have sent you a private message. I've been in touch with both the Titsey Estate management & Knockholt council about the waste. The bins at Botley were horrendous when we arrived. There were bags all around the outside of the bin that had clearly been there for some time. There are of course lots of runners and bikers coming through there, so there would undoubtedly have been gel wrappers there too - remember no crews were allowed in to Titsey/ Botley Hill whatsoever so there should have been no dumping of rubbish there in excess to that. We provide bin bags to all CPs and pick up and remove all of the rubbish in a vehicle when we clear the aid stations away.
At Knockholt it sounds like the public bins were being used on top of our own. I've spoken to the parish about this. It's something we need to be aware of for next year so thank you for raising it.
Debra - Alex is working on the photos now, they'll be free to download once they are up on the site.
Thanks guys. As always you can get in touch with me for anything positive or negative at racedirector @ centurionrunning.com
Thanks for your understanding on the course change guys. It is simply too dangerous for those of you that will reach Seven Sisters in the dark, to take it on without it being sufficiently lit. Even in daylight you get very close to the edge in places, suprisingly so, and the lights up the left hand edge of the fencing would have been crucial.
The aid station plan will be posted next week. I won't post anything until I have written permission for every spot and I am still waiting for that at 2. The locations and distances have all been set - 15 including the finish and well spread.
I'll drop a note on here once the aid table is live on the website. It will be posted along with the full crew instructions and infopacks. Should give you plenty of time to work on your plans with 2 months before race day.
Any questions please let me know or post here. Thanks a lot. James
