I ran in my very first competitive long distance race in the uwi spec 2011 and had a fantastic time, especially in meeting like minded individuals, particularly those who remembered me as being sometimes the lone supporter at the Cassleton short cut, taking pictures of participants. However to my shock and surprise my name has not appeared on the final online results listing. I recalled that at the end of the race a female official ran up to me to retrieve my timer and indicated that it should have been on my ankle and not on my wrist where I had it. Unfortunately for me, when the instrument was issued to me I was simply told to put it on, which i did, on my wrist. My race # was 681, and unlike Roanld, above, I want to have my day in the sun (pun intended-sMile). Please look into this uwi spec, my medal of participation will be empty without my name on the official results. Also may I respectfully suggest that in your list of instructions, that participants, particularly novices like myself be informed as to the placement of this very important equipment. thank you for a good and safe event.

My name is Ronald Clarke, I am a Trinidadian currently residing in the USA, and have participated in the Half Marathon last year and this past Sunday.
I know we don’t have control over the weather on race day, but I know the heat this year played a vital part on the outcome of the results of the race.
Last year it rained, keeping the temperature cool, comfortable and ideal for running, what a difference this year.

I am saying all this, so you could take the following into consideration.
Would your committee consider changing the race from the AM to PM, therefore, making it a Twilight run?
Race time could start at 6:00 pm, running into the cool of the night, where even the last runner don’t have to worry about the sun beating on his or her back, to get to the finish line.
My sister and I have been participating in a Twilight run in July in the Maryland area, and participants have increased from one thousand to three thousand plus over the past three years.

Thanks in advance for your kind consideration:

I love your suggestion Ronald, excellent idea, particularly as the majority of the route is already well lit. How about it uwi spec?
