The Last Post...

Well that's it for another year and for 11 special people, the dream and journey of a lifetime. They battled rain, torrential rain and even horizontal rain, to run thru floods and the wettest April for over 100 years. For all but one, their roads finished short of Land's End but we were with them thru their highs and lows and we were privileged to share the experience of setting off from John o'Groats with the aim of getting to the finish line.

It might be remembered as the 'Wet One' or the 'Record Breaking One' perhaps... What I know is that we will remember it as the 'Easy One' as everyone was just so fantastically easy going during the whole of the 16 days we were on the road.

Our thanks go to:- Katherine, Mel, Sean, Andy, Steve G, Steve P, Rainer, Tim E, Tim O, Tom F, Tom H - as you are ALL amazing and just getting to the start line takes huge courage on this ULTRA... and to get as far as you did took real guts...

We also thank Driver, Paul Derbyshire, and Chef, Ann White, for housing and feeding everyone during the event and my own personal thanks go to my partner Jenny for her love and support for 16 days.

All that remains to be said is that we will always remember the year that a very quietly spoken German called Rainer Koch came and ran from John o'Groats to Land's End and blew us ALL away.

Please tune in next time when we JOGLE again and if you are interested in taking part in JOGLE 2013 hurry up as we already have 9 looking forward to the challenge!
