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
