There are some useful notes beneath the list on how to do the timing.

You need a copy of the start list, the starting clock and a pen. Try to get to the start before the first runner is expected to set off. Display the starting clock in a conspicuous place so the runners can set themselves off at the appropriate time.
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. 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. If a runner starts late, write their actual start time on the list.
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. Unless they are a new starter they should yell out their start number as they cross the line to save you having to remember who they are. 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 John Crayston and pass on the starting clock to next week's timer. Then have a stiff drink! You deserve it.
