Staffs Knot 5, 2018 – “Note of Thanks”

 
Well, after all the hard work & planning, it finally came & went off without any Hiccups !
This year’s Staffs Knot with the 2nd running on the new course seemed to work as intended and we hope that everybody involved enjoyed themselves.
 
All at Stafford Harriers would like to say a big thank you to all helpers & volunteers for all of the hard work in making this year a big success !
We couldn’t have done it without all those who Marshalled on the night, helpers in the day during the set-up & at night after for the take down.
A special thanks goes to all Runners from far and wide for supporting the event and entering into the spirit of this competitive & fun family event.
I’d also like to thank all of the spectators for supporting & for all of the kind comments and feedback we have received.
 
Finally, we would like to thank the Forestry Commission & Staffs County Council  for allowing us to host the event and to all of our sponsors for supporting us.
Namely, Towergate, Audi, Alan Chatfield, & DHL.

& Finally a big thanks to our on-line entry, chip timing  and event public address partners – JCRace Solutions Ltd (www.JCRSolutions.co.uk)

who also sponsored the course record prizes.
 
We look forward to seeing you all again next year & please tell all your running club friends & connections to join us too !
 
Thanks you all

The course was measured on 8 June 17 by Rob Cope, a member of the association of UK Course Measurers and was certified accurate. He was accompanied by club member, Ian Hodkinson

Many runners use their GPS units to check the courses and although they are a useful guide they are not as accurate as an official measured course.

2016 Race results

27th July 2016

 

Due to a marshalling error the race results cannot be relied upon for the purposes of prize giving, course records, or the NSRRA league. Under the circumstances we have withdrawn most of the tables that we usually list for interest and have removed the rankings from the Finishers’ list.

The Fun Run had no such issues and the results for this can be seen below in full.
