Gottfried's 2015 Race Report
It all started out pretty normal, volunteers coming forward, registration pretty average, weather forecast pretty good, what could possible go wrong?
Then we lost some of the volunteers. My call out for help was very successful, thanks to some runners who recruited people for us and of course to those who stepped up to the plate and the ones who help out year after year, what a great team we ended up with!
Several days before the race I headed up to Manning Park to do the flagging, checked the weather forecast and got promised full sunshine and up to 21 degree temperatures.
No such thing happened!
First day flagging the 27 km loop I wore shorts and a long sleeve shirt and brought an extra shirt, that helped me stay alive, the whole day was wet cold and generally miserable.
The weather slowly improved and come race day it was still threatening, but turned out pretty decent, especially for the runners. Besides a few scrapes and bruises no serious injuries to report, that's a good thing! Everyone was accounted for, another good thing!
No records were broken, the 50 km record has been established in 2008, how long will it stand?
Looking forward to seeing you next year.
