That is a shame, it was on my shortlist his year but I decided on the cotswold 226. Hope you get something else sorted.

Yes it did go my way, thanks Dave I scrapped though with a 3:14:39. Chuffed to bits.

Now not so annoyed :- ).



Hi Mark,


Thank you for your patience whilst our race chip providers looked into your query.


I can confirm your details have been updated, these are being uploaded to our results page now therefore they should be active within the next hour."


Woo hoo, I hope this means its under 03:15.

Thanks E,M. I've done Chester a few years back, I dont think it was hilly but i do remember a bit of an uphill drag on the way back into the city. Its a bit close for me my legs are still sore from this Sunday.

I've decided to do the Autumn Shakesphere marathon in Nov, gives me a few weeks to put some decent miles in and try for a sub 3:10.

Organisers of the Nots race have sent my message to the chip timing company so we'll see what happens there.

I have emailed the organisers offering my garming data and an explaination of what i believe has happended. I havent heard anything in response yet, I had a fellow club mate running right next to me and he had exactly the same problem

Yes 100% sure, I was quite surprised too, the start was in waves and they walked the second wave up to the start line slowly then held us at the start for a while. I assume as the chip system had been started at the gun start, when the first wave went that it read my chip as soon as I was held at the start. 

Where you racing 2016?

Cotswolds 226 for me. Lots doing multiple IM this year. May have to pull my finger out.

I ran Nottingham marathon yesterday, I had a target in mind that I thought may just be achievable, I wanted a sub 3:15 and a GFA time. How pleased was I when I crossed the line, stopped my garmin for a time of 3:14:45. Checked the results today and my chip time is 3:16:17, I def didn't have any auto pause on. Darn it. Fast marathon recommendation anyone?
