Full results can be found on the Sport Systems site

Getting started in the sunshine
Over 1000 runners took to the road at Dunsfold Aerodrome for the Surrey Tempest 10 and Spitfire 20.  The first 3 miles of the race take place within the Aerodrome, which is also home to BBCs Top Gear, then head out to the surrounding country roads.

Here's some pictures of the action.

Leading all the way, first home winning the Tempest in 55:23

Taxi-ing down the runway
Preparing for the turn

Static bolt in the countryside - broadband is slower out there

Airplanes visible in the county lanes
Gliding to the finish, first to complete the 2 laps with a time of 1:51:42

Dynamic bolt at the end of the first lap

A good walk spoiled?

Well done to everyone who completed the events.   Excellent conditions for running and unlike the Spitfire/Tempest last time, no rain!  A big thank you to Alan, Nicky and the Events to Live team, and all the volunteer marshals who helped everything run so well on the day.

Next up from the Events To Live team is the Denbies 10 on 20th May, with some great views of the North Downs, plenty of hill and the great facilites of the Denbies Vineyard for the race HQ, start and finish.
