2012 - Pure Satisfaction Results - Year 10

Starter Photo - 9 December 2012 (29 Starters)


It was drizzling at the start in Deep Cove, our favourite starting point, sorry Craig! There were 28 starters and one retriever, Dynasty, who was working the crowd for pats like a professional. Mind you once she got on the trail her nose went into overtime and poor Craig had to slow down, you cannot rush a sniffing dog. We were chased on the first section by Gottfried's dog desperately tracking him down, what a reunion it was. The group soon spread out and as we climbed the slopes of Seymour the snow began. Luckily it wasn't really sticking, so we only had to contend with lots of mud and a little ice on some of the wood walk ways on the top of Seymour. Even the Lynn boardwalks were not icy after having been warned they might be.

Randy was doing the loop twice for 50kms, so we saw him three times, crazy man. In the process he set a new course record of 6:05, well done Randy. Of course we now have an up and a down route, so what's it going to be next year? By the time we came back over Seymour it was really getting it's winter wonderland look with the trees drooping under the snow, what a treat. Deep Cove was soon reached and Honeys beckoned for eggs benedict and coffee. there were still a few runners finishing off lunch so there were two lucky winners of Trail Runner magazine subscriptions, thank you Sibylle and Club Fatass.

The only oops moment of the run for us was when we got back to Vancouver and realized we had left the sign in clipboard on the rear wheel of the car, so back we went to Deep Cove to retrieve it, we didn't want to disappoint everyone by losing their results. Luckily for us it was lying forlornly in the parking lot, safe in it's plastic bag.

Thanks for coming out everyone, it was fun and maybe next year we can do a dual start to satisfy everyone. See you at the Fatass 50.

Randy Hunter's comment....

Super cool run, sure was awesome to see familiar faces again. Loved the treacherous downhills; hell of a tough 50km. Thanks everyone. See you soon for the New Years fat ass! Randy

Hello, Just writing to let


Just writing to let you know I arrived safe and sound after my custom run
(not sure of distance - maybe 20km? it took me 3:35). Thanks for organizing -
it was lots of fun, especially the winter wonderland at the top of the
Seymour Grind.
