A friend of mine who ran it said there was an issue with the timing chips. Don't think they registered at all He said it was a great race though and a great atmosphere

Hope everyone had a good time, i do believe their was a problem with the chips on the day.

Great to see 47 people doing C25k and their 1st 5k.

Good atmosphere and big crowd for the morning that was in it.
