Start Lists

Wed 30th May: Revised Start Lists are now available.

The Schools A grades ie JGA, JBA, SBA, SGA are the most affected but there are a few other changes in other grades. Please check your start times again.

Please note that the race bibs went to print before we knew we needed to redo the start lists and it was too late to start again; so unfortunately for those with changed start times the times on their bib will be incorrect. Please ALL check your start times and amend your bib on Saturday as necessary.
