What a weekend! There were plenty of highs and just a few lows.
Among the lows was Hamish who caught a vomiting bug, a number of members whose flight got cancelled so travelled to Dunedin and then hired a car to Christchurch to finally arrive at 3:45am.
The highs included:
- 16 teams plus supporters
- Our depth in SW, SM and MM40 who fielded multiple teams
- Our results against all odds including Top Club award (the twelfth time since 2001)
- The decorated vans
- The huge support for fellow Scottish runners throughout the day
- The post-relay dinner
- The baton awarding ceremony at dinner
- Grant and Paul’s shirts
- Post-dinner party in town
- Did I mention the Top Club award?
- Not sure if this is a high or low, but there were a few hangovers on Sunday morning
