Results

This year we experienced some technical issues with the event timing system and although we are still able to list all split times we are unfortunately not able to list lap times for the bike or run.

With our timing partner we have been through the race day results and they will be posted on our website later today as our provisional results for one week in order to resolve any queries. Our results can be found HERE.

Any queries should be channeled through our timing partner, Results Base. Your query should be sent to timingcrew@resultsbase.net.

Following the verification of times, post race day, there have been some amendments to the places announced on Sunday. If you have any queries to any of the changes then please contact our timing Partner, Results Base, as detailed above.
