In 2011 we had a total of 27 runners trying out our new race for the first time. In fact this was the first race we’d ever organised and we couldn’t have expected how it would grow over the years.
We didn’t have the short loop in place for the last hour so runners had to judge when to finish and when to go for one more full lap at the risk of missing the 12/24 hour cut-off and it not being counted in their final total. With it being the first year of the race, these were all new course records for total distance covered.
The highest mileage achieved this year was 124 miles by Jeroen Renes which was obviously a new course record.
