St Patrick's Day Challenge - 17/3/24

Good evening, all!


Thank you all for coming along to the beautiful Ferry Meadows Country Park today for The St Patrick's Day Challenge Event. We had some rather challenging weather to contend with, a bit of rain but not cold, the choice to cover up or not was changing each lap for some of you.

We had to change the original route due to necessary park path closures, which meant we used a very sociable out and back route which if you look on the map , looks like a Kite on a string, so we will call it the the kite route for future reference should we need to use it again.


It was great to meet so many of you for the first time and it was also so nice to see so many familiar faces - we welcome all of you to the Zig Zag Family! Congratulations to Darryl for finishing his 175th marathon today.

Congratulations to all of you who achieved PB's, to those of you who did firsts, from first 10k's, first Half Marathons, First heavy Half Marathons, First Marathons and even first Ultra Marathons,

Today's event Route: The Kite, a 5.3k Out and back route, Mainly paths around the beautiful lakes at Ferry meadows.


Marshals and Support:  We are so lucky to have the best marshals in the world. Once again we would like to extend our gratitude to all the brilliant marshals who ensured a smooth and fun experience for everyone. Their commitment to making the events enjoyable for all participants is remarkable. Considering the weather they were truly amazing and we had so many great comments about how they really made the day special.


Pictures and Memories: Remember to check out the amazing pictures captured during today's run! They will be uploaded to our Zig Zag running group on Facebook. Feel free to tag yourself and your friends to share the moments.


What’s new – We have recently launched our own Zig Zag Running App.  This can be found in the app store on your mobile device.  It’s a quick way to view these results, access events and see what we have on offer in our shop in terms of merchandise and virtual entries.


All medals are ordered into April with some of the next few events either sold out or getting close so don’t leave it too long if you have your eye on a specific piece of bling for your collection.


That said, we attach the race diary for the whole of 2024 and into 2025 so you can start planning your adventures.


What's next - Next weekend we are at our new venue - Hyde Hall Farm, Buntingford for the Moo-rathon, Calf and Hen K - we have a few spaces available if you wish to join us!

We are also hosting the Great Barrow Challenge (10 Events in 10 Days) for the second year.  Another great opportunity to push your boundaries and see what you can achieve.


Attached you'll find the results from today, course records and events diary.  Congratulations to those that took a record, got their own PR or PB’s.


Until the next run


Best wishes


Stephen and Zoe
