Liz, The Gazelle and Poster Boy teamed up to represent the Hotfooters for this amazing run in the stunning Elan Valley. There were some technical wooded sections, long sweeping descents and over 2,000 ft of climbing. Parts of the course were flagged but some map reading was required meaning that the distance was anywhere between 13 and 16 miles depending on your route choice.
Poster Boy and The Gazelle we’re flagging at the end and it was only Liz’s smutty stories, motivational pep talks and singing that kept them going. In fact Liz was such an inspiration that, despite a strong field of seasoned runners, they finished 4th overall bringing further glory to the club!
In addition to numerous friendly marshals there was an excellent food station at checkpoint 5 which had a barbecue serving hotdogs and cups of tea!!! Even The Gazelle, who we all know is an expert in race nutrition, was impressed.
We will be back next year to storm the podium.
