Our official results may provide more details of your performance based on your age category. The official results table should not be used by participants as an indication of “prize eligibility”. The prizes offered are for the categories listed above only.
Prizes will be awarded on the official ‘gun times’ in accordance with UKA Rules of Competition.
UK Athletics road races are competitive races (rather than time trials), therefore competition results, prizes and course records are awarded according to “gun time”. The clock starts the moment that the start gun, horn etc is sounded.
The chip time starts the moment the runner crosses the start line, and measures the time a runner takes to run the actual race distance until he/she cross the finish line. This is the result most people quote when asked for personal best times
