RESULTS & INFORMATION

A Big thank you to all runners who took part in the run and helped to support our charity, Dorset Youth Marching Band.

Well done to the Winners of the 4K and 10K runs, especially the young runners, running stars of the future maybe and to everyone who completed the run.

This year we had a French band L’elan Saumorios from Saumur in France visiting us who kindly offered to play at the finish line, we hope you enjoyed it.

There were no accidents or injuries and runners having difficulties reported which was great news for us as this is our main concern. We want every runner to complete the runs and enjoy themselves but most of all be safe.

The running times are now available on the website.

Last year we put a bar code scanning process in place and ran a manual timing system in parallel based on the Park Run in Poole Park. This year we improved and simplified the timing process in place with a few changes to how we did the timing.

  • Runners are allocated a Run Number at registration.
  • The start of the run was scanned, which logs the start time.
  • Across the finish line we simply scan the time as each runner crosses the line.
  • At the runners exit their number is scanned and taken manually in the order they cross the finish line.
  • We simply match the list of 32 running times against the list of 32 run numbers.
  • We know who the run number belong to so we can then produce a list of 32 runners names, run numbers and times.

What could be simpler……… but unfortunately we had the following problems:

A number of runners who went back on the course and crossed the finish line twice.

Runners came through with no run number, either previous finishers or non participants running with others

Runners who crossed the finish line and didn’t go through the exit to have their run number taken and returned through the finish line again later in the race. (We had a back-up plan if runners were scanned twice by scanning a special bar code, however one runner only let us no he had crossed the line twice after many other runners had crossed the line so we couldn’t identify exactly when the double scan happened).

We suspect a runner used a run number from last year and therefore was not registered.

This has lead to a very simple process being made complicated and almost impossible to accurately record runner’s times for this we can only apologies for the delay and any inaccurate times toward the middle to the end of the race, we have done our very best.

If anyone has any suggestions to make this timing process more accurate or how to better police the runners or any feedback to improve the Moors Valley Run, please let us know. Feedback, good and bad can only help us improve the run and make it more successful.

So far we have had the following comments. “The marshals were very encouraging as we were going around the course”, “I love the venue, very enjoyable running course”, “Can you put more signs at the visitors centre to point to the 10K start point”. “We enjoy the band playing at the finish”.
