Event number 325

Double wow!! Massive turnout this morning with 497 runners joining us on the links.

Thank you all for your patience in the funnel as we worked through handing out the tokens in the queues. We formed two queues to prevent a build up beyond the timers and we did our very best to make sure everyone got the correct token - however, if you feel you are in the wrong position please let us know.

We had 6 runners this morning who ducked out of the funnel before taking a token, and we think we have fixed this. Please remember to take a token if you cross past the timers.

A few runners who were scanned are showing as errors, so if you were scanned and aren't showing in the results please email. Full run report is below:
