ATC Summer Sunset Team Time Trial

Thank you very much to everyone who helped out at the ATC Summer Sunset Team Time Trial last week.  With an unexpectedly large number of late entries the field increased to over 120 teams, our largest field yet.  But all went quite smoothly and we’ve received a lot of positive feedback.  We have published team results below and are working on the individual lap times, which takes a bit longer, as manually recording times and numbers in the Transition area takes some doing!
If you have some spare time to assist with capturing of the finishers cards, please let us know.
Congratulations to the Eastern Destroyers (Kraaifontein) who blazed through their laps to, once again, take the overall win in 33:31.  Team "Worst Pace Scenario" won the prize for the best team name and "The Running Dead" were certainly the best dressed this time.
Thank you also to New Balance and The RUN Store who were present to demonstrate the latest New Balance running technology.
Unfortunately, due to a medical emergency with one of the runners, we did not get around to awarding the Kelfords Ford-for-a Month.  We are happy to report that the runner is fine.  She was taken to hospital and released on the same evening.
We will draw the winner of the Ford-for-Month at the ATC AGM.  All helpers at the SS TTT and members present at the AGM will be eligible to win the car this month.
