Start Blocks

Due to the large proportion of entries specifying a start block (85%) and the high demand for middle (37%) and late (40%) starts, the middle start block runs from 10:10 to 11:55 and the late from 11:10. On some courses as many as 50% of the competitors asked for late starts.

In order to satisfy the requirements to separate seeds, to separate members of the same club, to give all competitors on the same entry form similar start times, and to maintain an even spread of start times it has not been possible to satisfy everybody’s start block request.

Competitors entered along with a FCC/UK Cup runner have been given start times similar to the FCC/UK Cup start irrespective of the requested start block.
