2013 Wagga Trail Marathon Running Weekend

Spring weather greeted participants of this year’s Wagga Trail Marathon Running Weekend. Organisers changed the format of the event this year to a popular 5km and 10km run on the Saturday, with the Marathon, 1/2 Marathon and Marathon Relay being held on Sunday morning. On the spot finisher certificates were popular again this year. The tablet and large screen announcers display proved to be very useful and added to the professional atmosphere of the event.

Marathon run times were amazing with the male winner home in 2:47:21 and female winner back in 3:08:28. The timing gear sailed through a power outage 5 minutes before the first marathon runner finishing, with the ultra and racetec server both running on battery backup. But it’s never good for a timers nerves to lose your power at such a critical time during an event.
