What was the race like this year? very crowded and narrow last year.
Any where Actually to view results.?.
Precision timing web wont open them, <it opens Ballivor 5mile ect. fine.> and club website is microsoft office rubbish that you need to pay for to open the file.
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
This was up on Lindie Naughtons blog:
This certainty isn't the 1st time precision have messed up leaving the club trying to scrap together a set of results from photos/videos etc
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.
