In partnership with Race Time Result, I provided technical support and monitoring while the event was in progress to assist in making sure that everyone had a safe and enjoyable time.

Unfortunately, due to horrendous weather conditions on the final stage with up to 70 Mile an hour winds, the Event Management Crew had little choice but to cut the final stage on Ben Nevis short for the safety of all.

Even so, the challengers raised an absolutely staggering £175,000 for the charity in this fantastic and challenging event. I and the Race Time Result team would like to offer a huge well done to everyone involved in the event. Amazing!

The Cotswold Marathon

A hundred and fifty teams of Scouts and Guides are undertaking an adventurous night hike across the darkened Cotswold hills tonight for the 49th Cotswold Marathon!

With no pre-planned routes provided, this huge group of brave youngsters are navigating their own way to a series of checkpoints on one of three different course lengths of 10, 20 and 30 miles.

Using GPS tracking technology from Race Time Result and with me on call as technical support, Gloucester District Scout Council will be able to make sure that everyone stays safe and has a great night on their challenge!
