With assistance from a wonderful team of forest fairies and elves as my marshals and route sweepers, the day went very smoothly. Conditions began cool and misty and warmed up during the day. I couldn't have planned it better.
Photographs from the race are out on the Forest Run Facebook, taken by my friends Maggi and Marcel (Sigg Digital). They beautifully capture the spirit of the forest and the runners and the event. Definitely take a look.
This is the newsletter that I sent out yesterday with results and some fun stuff.
The date for Forest Run next year will probably be Saturday, 12 March 2016. I hope to see you there.
