Well done to all 12 people who ran the ‘predicted time’ handicap today
Congratulations to Ruth who ran a very impressive PB of 30:57, knocking 1:05 off her previous best and Ian Robinson, who came close, missing his PB of 23:43 by just 3 seconds.
There are several leaders in the ‘current consecutive attendances’ challenge, with Mark A, Jules and Ian having competed, or timed, each of the last 5 events, the question is now, who will drop first from these 3 leaders …
The ladies course record remains Naomi Stanley with a time of 26:16 in event no. 19 (Feb 14). The men’s record was set by Paul Ashley with a time of 19:20 in event no. 7 (Feb 13).
This was a ‘predicted time’ handicap and I was surprisingly impressed with the accuracy of the predictions/guesses, there were 9 people who achieved a time within 1 minute of their prediction and 5 who were within 15 seconds, the winner being Eddie, with a prediction of 25:30 and an actual time of 25:27 – hope he’s enjoying the chocolates.
The most far out prediction was Andy Joyce, with a difference of 3:10 – but there are never any losers on the handicap, so he too has a small festive treat.
The next event will be on 29th January. Until then, everyone have a happy Christmas and a great new year.
