Eight Point Two

Suffolk Whole Hog Team Race

Yesterday was the day for the team race!

With just over a 100 teams competing it was always going to be a busy day but after the success of the individuals day we were confident of another good day. The course followed pretty much the same route as the individuals race but also included a team challenge which involved dragging concrete posts around a short-circuit!

The race started well with the competitors making good times around the earlier section of the route. Unfortunately, unbeknown to us, somebody had tampered with an early section of the route which caused some of the leading teams to go off route! However, the mistake was soon rectified but the course tampering resulted in some strong teams losing much time and their rightful places in the race! We were obviously hugely disappointed about this and are still trying to get to the bottom of who might have removed the vital signs and tape. Needless to say it was very disappointing for the faster teams!

However, the race continued and the hole was plugged soon after it had been made meaning that the majority of teams were soon following the course as it was laid out. There were a number of good times made yesterday including another sub hour result from the leading all mens team! Another excellent time! It was a great effort from all of those teams that took part – especially those of you who did the extra loop. Big thanks once again to the Fitness Unit who sponsored the event. Thanks Guys!! Until next year!

Could you indicate on the results which teams took the wrong route? It’d be nice to know where we might have finished had we not gone the wrong way.

Aside from that disappointment, I have to say it was a great event. Looking forward to next year already.

Hi Alistair

We were really dissapointed too – glad you enjoyed it all the same.

Whilst we know which teams went astray its difficult to calculate what effect the mistake made on them – which is why we chose not to try yesterday. Of the teams which went astray some realised that there wasnt any route markings and turned back and re joined the proper route meaning only a very short increase in time whilst some carried on a fair distance meaning a much longer time penalty. The best you can do is to roughly calculate how long you spent ‘off route’ and compare with other times – however, its not going to give you an accurate placing because of the issues I mentioned above.

We too took a wrong turn and went at least 5k off the route,as well as doing several obstacles twice.This was followed by a 25 minute wait for the zipwire. First time I’ve done it so really disappointed, but will do it next year.Maybe more marshals and no zip wire for 2012.

Comment by Emily

Fantastic day, definatley enter it again, only gripe was the team who beat us by a minute jumped the queue in front of us at the zip wire, hence getting to the other side much quicker.!

sorry just had to mention this.

Comment by Andrea Friend

I think we all appreciate that its impossible to figure out who should have placed where, but it would still be appreciated if you could asterisk by the names of the teams that went off route and please at least give us that to show that there was a problem.

Comment by Sue Woodhead

Brilliant event! really challenging, but so much fun, definitely will be doing it again next year. Only comment I would have is that there was quite a bit of waiting time to do some of the obstacles, such as the zip wire, but did give us chance to catch our breath.

Comment by Rick

I wouldn’t exactly say that the waiting time at the zip wire was good to catch a breath – more like time to well and truly freeze and then have to run another 2 miles on cold and stiff muscles promoting injury!! – Not that I’m bitter about having to run an extra 4.5k!

Comment by Lucy

Great fun, but as one of those who ended up doing almost 18k due to the sabotage of the route markers, it is annoying to see our time well over the 75 min mark we did the true course in. Bring on next year and a few more stewards to keep an eye on things, cheers.x

Comment by Martin Culpeck

Think the zip wire should be dumped – took nearly half an hour to queue up for it.
