This evening’s conditions were almost perfect for the Springfield Striders Friday Night 5, held in the quiet and historic village of Pleshey on the outskirts of Chelmsford. Warm, dry but with a nice cool breeze (not too strong) it was a real pleasure to see the 250 athletes warming up and preparing as I performed the final systems checks ready for Gun Time.
The Friday Night 5 is the fifth event in the Essex Athletics Road Race Championship and the top 25 finishers in each age category receive points that go towards the chance for a medal at the end of the season.
I attended the event on behalf of Race Time Result to provide the race timing services for the evening. With separate start and finish lines to keep me busy, as well as the important task of providing regular results updates to Essex for the evenings awards.
A huge well done to everybody who took part and congratulations to all those who beat their personal bests (and in one case set a new course record!).
Organised by Norfolk Council in association with North Norfolk Beach Runners, The Mammoth Marathon finally got to go ahead this year after COVID-19 caused it to be postponed over the last couple of years.
I was really pleased to be able to go as part of a larger timing crew this year to be able to time the event and was delighted to see so many runners coming out for the day. Well done to everyone who took part!
I was delighted to be able to attend the Northstowe Half Marathon today as part of a timing crew from Race Time Result to time both the Half Marathon and the Fullscope 5K.
The Northstowe Half Marathon takes you along a wonderful course route with varied surfaces and scenery. It visits some of the beautiful surrounding countryside and the historical Longstanton, as well as the town of Northstowe itself.
The Northstowe Half Marathon is a multi-terrain race, heading through the scenic and developing town of Northstowe.
The 2022 Maldon Mud Race
Fear not though, one of our other timing teams from Race Time Result will be at the 2022 Maldon Mud Race to ensure that our usual high standard of timing services are delivered to this excellent event!
Held at Ripley Castle in Harrogate, the Yorkshire Warrior is an exciting obstacle race and log run. With 2 race lengths this year, the 10K and the 20K as well as the ever popular 3K junior race, more than 500 athletes of all ages turned out to take on this epic challenge!
