Post Event Comments:

There were an unusual (4) instances of DNS (did not start), so owing to a slight suspicion of a start box not registering punches, by agreement with the controller, we have credited the affected runners with a start time based on their check time (+30 seconds).  There is however no indication from either of the start boxes of partial punches. Analysis of the range of times between check and start varied between 5 seconds and 3 minutes (with vast majority taking > 30 seconds).  Looking at the results, I am pretty confident that no-one has unfairly lost a position out due to the adjustment.



The following items were found  after the event:

  • Control Description holder (on Green course)
  • A Pentax GPS unit(found by one of the controls)

Please contact me at: [email protected] if either of these belong to you.
