October was an incredibly busy month for our Race Timing Team with Races in Oxfordshire, Hampshire, Devon, Kent and Essex. Meanwhile our hardware was used to generate split times in the Dublin Marathon.
Highlights from the month included:
The extreme privilege to time a new World Record for Dr Jessica Bruce at the Abingdon Marathon. She completed the race in 3:22:05 while running with a double buggy.
The Basingstoke Half Marathon had its first local Hampshire based winner when Southampton Athlete Matt Bennett won in 1:12:33.
After many years of manual timing the Woodstock & Kidlington Rotary Club 10k and 5k at Blenheim Palace moved to a chip timed service.
