Hi all, just getting prepared for the 2019 season. The race dates for this year are posted here. The PB times have now been re-calculated, if you’re unsure how this is done, it’s explained in the rules.
For this year, the entry fee will be £2.00 per race. The increase of 50p per competitor will be donated to Woodhead MRT, partly because a number of their members give time to help with the Trunce and also because they are a nice bunch of folks who deserve it.
In Race 4 we mistakenly allocated the same numbers to two runners for a group of new entrants. I have allocated new numbers to half of the people affected as detailed below. Your new number is in the left column, the number you were mistakenly given is shown after your surname. I will now try and separate out the results so that your correct time is shown against the new number. If you have already been in contact with details to clarify, then I should be able to sort it for you. If you have not yet been in touch, could you submit a results query to let me know your approximate race time. Thanks for your patience, I will hopefully have this sorted before next race.

Hi, from this year onwards if you change age category from Junior to Senior, then please request a new number when you register. We need to do this to ensure that your PB is calculated correctly, and also to make sure there are no mix-ups at the finish as Junior numbers are red and senior numbers are black.
There are a number of people who are eligible for Trunce T-Shirts, basically anyone who has done at least 5 races this season can have one. The list is here. You can either pick it up next season, or contact Andy Plummer through the Trunce FB page to make other arrangements.
Well that took some sorting. Sorry about the delay, the Race 9 and End of Season results are now available. Thanks for taking part everyone, see you next year.
We’re having a bit of a technical issue with the website hosting at present which is preventing the upload of Race 9 results. Please bear with us – it will be resolved as soon as possible.
We have been contacted by the farmer who owns the fields where the race starts and finishes politely requesting that we avoid trampling the grass either side of the track. Please make every effort to comply with this request, as it is in everyone’s interest that we have a good relationship with the landowners.
Additionally, please don’t use the gate half way down the field to access the start – please walk round via the car park.
As many of you are aware, there has been some debate over the past few years about the system we use to allocate points for exceeding PB times. After reflecting on what we could do to improve the system, we have come up with some changes to the way we allocate PB points. Basically, PB points will be allocated on a sliding scale depending on how much you beat the PB time.
Additionally, we have clarified the rules on Juniors becoming 16 during the season. From now on, if you turn 16 during the season, you should continue to compete in the junior races up to the end of the season. All age categories are determined from the competitor’s age on the day of the first race.
There are also some other clarifications and minor rule changes. Please take time to familiarize yourself with the rules here.
The PB times have now been updated for the start of the 2016 Trunce Season. You can check your PB time on the My Details page. If you can’t remember your Trunce number then look it up on the Find Your Number page.
Looking at the turn-out statistics for the races this season, we have 21 competitors who have run all 9 races. 459 seem to have found it all too much.
