Event Report

What an amazing day! At 9.30am 28 runners from Kidlington and Bicester Tri got together to try and beat the world record marathon time as a team. There was a race briefing as we discussed the tactics we were using, namely to break the 8 x 200m legs into 2 so each person would run 4x 200m in a team of 7/8 meaning they would have a break of about 4 – 5 minutes between 200m repetitions and about an hour between the 2 sets.

The iconic track added a special feeling of occasion to the event, and many runners struggled not to sprint the first leg full out. While waiting for their turn, other runners were warming up and shouting their support.

There was music, cakes, and drinks for everyone supporting and we had a nice group of about 30 supporters come along to see what was happening and support the CF trust.

Once all the runners in one group had finished their run they passed the baton onto the next team. The baton had a watch strapped to it that measured the run GPS wise and was meant to offer a live feed back to the HQ (but this didn’t buy bayer levitra online happen due to technical reasons). We also had two timers on the track measuring each 200m leg which proved tricky as they were from a flying start.

For the last leg of the event Wiz Bunce was joined by all the runners who went over the line together to the Chariots of Fire song passing through the Cystic Fibrosis Trust finishing line- what a fantastic experience!

Following a bit of number crunching the prizes were awarded and everyone was told the final times for our marathon:

Fastest 200m Leg: William White (26.97 secs)

Fastest Mile: William White (3 minutes 52 seconds)
2nd – (and prize winner as William won fastest 200m -) Stephen Clark – 4 minutes, 19 seconds

Fastest Age Graded Runner: Lee Godber (69.85%) but congrats to our youngest Jess (68.33%) and our wisest Michael (66.59%)

Best Effort Award: Sue Leigh-Howard (amazing effort on every leg!)
