Craig Welsh Based in Amsterdam for 7 years now, Craig is originally from Glasgow. Having run 12km on the Dutch coast earlier this year, with a wind chill of -15C, he is looking forward to running in slightly more pleasant conditions.
30th October – Training is going ok, I suppose my anecdote so far was running 7k in the storm force winds of plus 100km/h on Monday as the recent storm hit the Netherlands! That shows determination I suppose!
I was running in the forest so was kind of sheltered from the wind by the trees, although if any of the trees collapsed I might have been in trouble!
The Race is Over
We had a great weekend. The run was tough due to the strong wind but I managed a good time, mostly due to being egged on by my superfit running mate!
Overall it was a pleasure to take part in a great event, in such a beautiful corner of the world, and to raise funds for a great cause.
I’d like to thank everyone who donated (every donation does help) and also those who made such a big effort to organise everything, particularly Mr. Eaborn!
