Waterford...Results of the Waterford-Tramore 7.5 - Sat 8 May 2010

The 41th annual Waterford to Tramore road race, held in memory of Paddy Flanagan, took place on a great evening, with an increase of 24 over 2009.

I must say that this race, had the poshest registration I've seen yet, at the Theatre Royal, The Mall. Did somebody sprinkle rose petals at the front door, or did the wind do it ?

Chip Timing was used, and full results were produced by the time prizes were presented.

New course records were set by Sandis Bralitis, West Waterford AC (- 1:09) and Pauline Lamb, Tullamore Harriers AC (- 0:05)
Significant work has been done by the local council on the R675, from Tramore Road Roundabout, to Ballindud Roundabout - perhaps this helped ?

Water station was brought forward to 3.5 mile, outside Grace Dieu.
The finish line was moved slightly to outside Splashworld, and all finishers received a water bottle and banana.

Did anybody have issues with the distance recorded by GPS watches, e.g. Garmin ?
