Weather and Ground Conditions: Depending on the weather and ground conditions it may be necessary to alter the route, provide alternative routes and later the start, this may shorten the distance run.
Timings: Unfortunately chip timing for this event is proving cost prohibitive, however we are going to use a bar code scanning system linked to wrist bands to time the race. We have not used this system before, so are not 100% sure that it will be accurate or work on the day, so please if timing is important please use your own timing system.
