This event is staffed by volunteers and, while all efforts will be made to record finish times, the organisers take no responsibility for failure to record times accurately. The results have been contracted out to a third party and they will record the 10k times by chip timing. The organisers accept no responsibility for equipment failure or an inability to capture finish times in any way. Failure to secure your chip in line with the instructions or to lose it will mean your time is not recorded.

We use British Athletics rules in arriving at winners. Suffolk Trail Festival base their winners on the information supplied by the chip timing company and do not accept responsibility for any errors.

If an accurate race time is imperative to competitors we ask that they bring their own watches to record their times.

All times will be uploaded to the website hopefully from the Sunday evening. All recorded times are final and no dispute will be entered into.
