My first opportunity of 2022 to get out with the race timing team from Race Time Result at the Leigh-on-Sea Striders After Dark 10K, with 275 amazing athletes looking to start the New Year off with a bang.
With separate start and finish lines, situated about 100M apart and each with their own independent timing setup, we arrived in plenty of time to get all of the equipment assembled and tested before Gun Time.
The After Dark 10K Start Line
The After Dark 10K is a relatively unique event in that it’s the only one on our calendar this year (to date) that has to be prepared without the aid of natural light. Still, despite the limitations imposed by the cold wintery conditions, and the additional challenges presented by the darkness, we had a thoroughly enjoyable time getting everything in place and ready to go.
The atmosphere of the event was lively and exciting, despite the chilly conditions, and all of the athletes seemed very keen to get started.
Well done to everyone who took part and we hope you enjoyed the evening!
