Brilliant, brilliant event as always. Got my hat trick and a PB and already mulling over returning next year despite swearing never again yesterday. Good effort with the last minute detours too, can't have been easy! Volunteers deserve the biggest thanks as always
Thank you so so much to you, Anna and the rest of the team for last weekend. I had an incredible time and working alongside Wendi was fantastic. Matt and I both as competitor and volunteer thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and I shall certainly be getting involved again. I am hoping to sign up to do my first ultra with you guys next year and I look forward to joining you all again very soon
May I firstly say what a fantastic weekend my wife Caroline, friend Sarah and I had. We all did far better than any of us thought possible. However due to the great company, organisation and hospitality we came away from the event more than happy, thank you.
I was concerned when I realised I was starting in the elite group as I really felt that there was no way my standard of running would warrant such a starting position, not having done a back to back event before I wondered whether I would actually complete it. However my only failing was probably not to have a bit more faith in my ability, as despite getting lost on day1 I managed to finish the day in 15th place overall. Day2 seemed to be a much better day for me by not getting lost and managing to start a bit steadier and maintain a more even pace.
I thank you for forwarding the results so quickly as I can only imagine how difficult it must be to compile them with it being a 2 day event.
