Did the Half Marathon in 2021
My friend and I who competed in this race are incredibly disappointed that for whatever reason they stopped recording peoples times for anyone who finished after 2 hours. So neither of us after all that effort have a time to show for it. It’s incredibly disappointing and I hope the error is looked into and fixed.
