In a surprising turn of events, the most enigmatic, mysterious and underground of race series now has its very own website
www.ssafa5kcardiff.org/
Angela gets a special mention here www.ssafa5kcardiff.org/index.php/records/
The only thing I'm wondering about is whether the works on North Road parking area that the race uses will be finished in time.

Near perfect conditions saw a great turnout with over 220 runners trying out the new 2018 course.

Daniel Bodman of Aberdare Valley AAC lead the way with a time of 15:47 only a couple of seconds ahead of Craig Williams, aged 20, Micky Morris. Luke Williams of San Domenico pipped Joseph Reardon, another Aberdare Valley U20 runner, for third spot in 15:57

Lucy Marland, W35, Cardiff AAC brought the ladies home in 17:47, placing 33rd overall. Next was Helen Sharpe, also W35 of Fife AC in 18:21, 42nd overall.

Rhodi Jones, SW, was the third-placed woman in 19:44 with Caitlin Peers, SW, of CVAC in fourth spot in 19:50

Many thanks – and Congratulations – to Penarth & Dinas RC for helping get the 2018 Series off to a great start. A total of 38 P&D runners turned up on the night making very fast work of a birthday cake for the club’s 30th anniversary. For the record, the fastest P&D member, Gary Brown finished 27th overall in 17:27 (He may even have been fast enough to get some cake.)

The results aren't quite right. It appears a lot of us have been allocated the time of the runner behind us or possibly even two runners behind. My watch said 22:17 so I'd expect to show as 22:17 or 18 but I'm 22:21.

Agreed but they tend to not do corrections

I think they actually may need to do something this time as they are obviously wrong.
Position 38 appears twice with the same time 18:01 which might be OK if they are saying dead heat for 38th place (unusual but not wrong) except for the fact that position 39 comes next which can't be right.
Then to balance things out there is no position 133 and then two position 150s followed by a 151 then two position 152s followed by a 153 then 154 is missing and 157 is missing.

For what it is worth I am guessing based on James Sibley's time and mine that the times are shunted two places forward, i.e James should be 20:58 and mine 21:25. It goes without saying that having done over 1100 races I'm not remotely concerned about 4 seconds but it could mean a PB or not for someone else.

A few top tips when doing results from my experience.
Use Excel
Enter times always as HH:MM:SS, never use dot as separator and never miss off the leading HH
Don't type things you don't have to e.g. Use Fill Series for the position, starting at 1, that way you can't get these kind of sequence errors.
Filter on club name, then you can spot the 101 versions of the way people mis-spell their club name and fix them so the end result looks a lot more professional

Yes Dom, you are right about the two places forward as I know Megan was about 5 seconds ahead of me as we finished so that would give her the 22:12 that Michael Davies has and give me the 22:17 that Carys Durie has

Yep that's exactly what I recorded on my watch. Although I've run faster at parkrun so not a PB in that sense, I have only run two official 5k races before, the last SSAFA and summer sizzler last year, and both of those were 23 something so I guess it will be a PB according to runbritain!

Good spot! My watch was 22:11 and I started it as soon as the gun went.
Carys was just ahead of me
