Survive 12 2016

Well done to everyone that took part in the first ever Survive 12!

Thursday, 24 November, 2016 - 09:30

A number of hardy runners took part in the first ever Survive 12 at Irchester Country Park last Saturday. We had soloists, pairs and teams of 3 and 4 all running as many 5 miles laps as they could within 12 hours. More than half of the event took place in the dark making the muddy terrain even tougher.

Everyone that took part found the event challenging, but enjoyed the camaraderie they developed throughout the day. The category winners were as follows: Karl Doy won the solo male category with 14 laps. Emma Tuck won the solo female category with 11 laps. 'Team Donkey & Elmo' won with mixed pairs category with 17 laps. 'Team NoWussingOut' won the pairs male category with 16 laps. 'Team Polish Wolves v2' won the pairs female category with 14 laps. ‘Going Strong’ won the teams’ category with 17 laps. 

Thank you to the event sponsors USN who provided the nutrition and prizes and Newton Running/Stryd for providing prizes. We would also like to thank Function Jigsaw for providing massage services.
