Briefing Notes

31/08/2018 - Live results should be available by following this rather catchy link  network permitting. 

30/08/2018 - We have got plenty of plastic bags to take away your goodies if you need one, however we are trying to reduce their usage, so if you would like to do your bit please bring your own bag to registration. We will be using paper drinks cups. 

These notes are specific to the 2018 race and should be read in conjunction with the more general Race Information
