Thanks for all of the offers so far! I think we're covered for registration. So if any of you hope to race, if you could arrive a bit earlier to help set up or stay a little later to help with the cleanup that would be greatly appreciated! And if there's anyone still available to marshal during the race, that would be greatly appreciated - we still need a few more in order to ensure we have a safe race for all involved.
Finally, I had asked before for volunteers to help with the timing. Well... we're not going to be needing them. This year we're going to trial a chip company and see how it goes - if we're happy with it we'll stick with it from next year (though will most likely have to increase the cost of the entries). Hopefully this will result in far less on-the-day stress for those involved, and also provide a real value-add in terms of split times for the competitors. Many thanks to the committee for agreeing to trial this as it will (hopefully!!!) make the Race Director's job a lot easier in future.
