Neil and Carolyn's Saturday Time

Hi Gilles, Thanks for organizing a great event! Our time was 3:15. We think we did 30km although our return route in the park was somewhat different from what you took us on at the start! Cheers, Carolyn and Neil

Flash - Valentine's Double Fat Ass

Hello Gilles,

Pat Cheung and I ran about 40K in 5 hr and 15 min. We want to be 100% in love but our feet won't listen to our instructions. We settled for the slightly-less-in-love category.

Thanks for your organization to set up such lovely challenge.
