Better update coming tomorrow with a more thorough account of the race.
The overall result:
I came in 28th place out of 91, 3rd woman on our team to finish, which meant that my score counted towards our league standing
Next race is at Richmond Park, which has 650 free-roaming deer that we have been told are occasionally prone to chasing people during mating season. It will be in the middle of mating season when our race occurs in a fortnight, so I have images of myself being chased by giant lust-crazed red deer. It will certainly add an unusual element to the race.
