Official race report:
It was not a nice day!
Just before the start it teemed with rain….then the wind changed to the south
and added some sleet to the mix!
So first off, congratulations to the hardy band of 16 who not only started, but actually
finished the 5 km course.
We couldn’t work out the places until the last walker had finished, so having
demolished their chocolate slabs, most competitors decided not to stand around
shivering, but took off to find somewhere warmer. So Joe got his bottle of bubbly and
the organisers got the packets of chocs….anyway, with the boot lid being open most
of the time, the packs had become water-logged and disintegrated!
The results were a challenge, too, despite Robyn’s careful recording, the paper had
turned to mush by the time we tried to calculate the differences. Daphne nobly
pointed out the error in her score…caused by wet paper... really it was!
We’ll do better with the weather next time. Promise?
Full results below. 'Race 1' is the results for the Turkey Trot (difference from estimated time), and 'Race 2' is the total time taken.
