The volunteers on the course were absolutely incredible, there are not many words that can say how much we appreciated their cheers and encouragement on course. I am sure that there would have been some long periods especially throughout the night when the volunteers would have been own there own for extended periods of time, however they still kept the energy going all through the night and day.
I know as a participant how much I appreciated all the help on the course, through those good times and bad. Getting out of the muddy mile on your own and just seeing someone can just make you feel so good. As you get lost in your own head and just speaking, saying hi, or even a quick hug just helps with lifting your spirits when you needed them the most.
The kindness and encouragement that was shown by the volunteers will be forever with me and nothing I can say will express how thankful we all are for them, as we would all be lost without them.
It really is true what they say about event volunteers and that no event would work without them.
