Level of event: Regional
Type of event: Race, Urban



We hope you enjoyed your runs in Peterborough today.

A small number of finishers found when they downloaded that their start punch had not registered. In these cases we have reinstated what we estimate the start time to be, based on check punch time and other data. We do not believe the start box was faulty so we remind all runners that it is the runner’s responsibility to check for feedback (beeps/flashes) from each punch, including the start control.
