The results have been disconbobulated so that people who entered the marathon, but did a half in the end are now all straightened out and are on the SportsSystems website here. They are still in provisional status as I type, so just contact them if you think there's anything amiss.
Looking through the gallery I can only guess that the fancy dress theme must have been "Carry on up the Bacchus"... Take a look and tell me what you think too. Frankly running a half marathon is hard enough, you don't really need a hilly one or fancy dress, but all of you to your own challenges !!
Regarding the wine and water stops, I hear the 2010 vintages went down particularly well, and although it might have only seemed like a 1:35 half marathon, it was infact 5:43 and you did two laps for the full marathon by mistake...
Before I post the photos - as ever a quick reminder of this weekends upcoming action that you really ought to be organised for - click on the links and get your race schedule planned !!
