There are some useful notes beneath the list on how to do the timing. 24/01/2017 Hugo Shiers 31/01/2017 Cat Downy* 07/02/2017 Will Atkinson* Short 14/02/2017 John Brandon 21/02/2017 Ed Rial* 28/02/2017 Andrew Harwood 07/03/2017 David Price* Short 14/03/2017 Simon Lay 21/03/2017 Susan Baigent* 28/03/2017 Matt Furseman* 04/04/2017 Joe Wellings* Short 11/04/2017 Chris Bell* 18/04/2017 Stewart Scott* 25/04/2017 Marco Luna 02/05/2017 Jon Kelly* Short
You need a copy of the start list, a digital watch and a pen. Try to get to the start before the first runner is expected to set off. As runners arrive, find out who they are and highlight their start time and which course they are doing on the start list. It the runner is not on the start list, give them an appropriate time and make sure you record their name and email address. Keep an eye on the time and let runners know as their time approaches. Give them a short count down before sending them off. If a runner starts late, write their actual start time on the list. It may be worth writing down some distinguishing feature (e.g. red shorts) so you know who they are when they run in to the finish.
When all the runners are gone, you may have time to do the short or mini courses yourself. You should expect the first runners to finish any time after 12:55. Record the time that they finish as they come in. You can download a sheet for recording the finishers here.
When all have finished try to work out who won the trophy. It should be the first runner to finish over the scheduled course. Give or send the results and marked start list to me. Then have a stiff drink! You deserve it.
