The results are listed in the attached PDF files, they include category winners, full results listing and team results. There also excel spreadsheets at the bottom for the propeller heads to play with.
The age categories by gender include U7, U11, U9, U13, U35, 35+, 40+, 45+, 50+, 55+, 60+
There are also combined results for people that did both races. Mike Link won the overall dirty weekend and was the only person to complete the whole course twice in a combined time of under 2 hours, given he is also in his 40’s this is a simply stunning result.
We will be posting on trophies for the categories as soon as possible.
Marshalls Awards: These are awarded each day to the runner or runners who best capture the spirit of the event. The following won marshalls award.
Sunday Marshalls Award: Wesley Morrison & Paul Shufflebotham – this fag smoking tattooed duo, have attended every race at Eastor (well Wes has, the shuff missed one), they terrify us, but keep going, never training always running and always smiling
Saturday Marshalls Award: Ranald Forbes – like Wes, Ranald has also completed every single Mud Runner event held at Eastnor (including both races on the dirty weekend), last year he even completed OBLIVION on a fractured ankle to ensure he continued his run and remained a survivor. Although there is a group of people who have completed 7 races, only Wes and Ranald have completed all 9.
Full Dirty Weekend Marshalls Award: Eliot Taylor – Eliot has consistently placed in the top 5 at Mud Runner races and this year having placed well at ICEBREAKER became a Mud Master. He is a very talented young runner, who unfortunately took a wrong turning on Saturday’s race and ended up running about 8 miles, along with a few other runners who followed him. Undaunted he turned out on Sunday and ran it again, finishing 2nd. It is gutting for race organisers when athletes get lost on the course and athletes get very angry when it happens. Eliot was completely pragmatic about this and wrote a really positive blog post about his experience. This award recognises his tenacity for coming back and not giving Elsie a load of grief for when he got lost which must have been bitterly disapointing. – http://herefordcouriers.com/2012/07/04/mudrunner-oblivionthe-dirty-weekend/
Mud Runner JUNIOR Marshalls Awards
Saturday Marshalls Award: Malvern Joggers Junior Runners: Newly formed, we always have a great turn out from the Malvern Joggers and it is great to see their Junior side growing so strong, also to see so many of the adults running along with the Juniors – www.malvernjoggers.co.uk
Sunday Marshalls Award: Newport & District Harriers: As with the Malvern Joggers another awesome turnout, they also won the mixed team prize. Nice one.
Full Dirty Weekend Marshalls Award: Poppy Wharrad, Jayne, Duncan & Vaughan Cresswell – We didn’t really know what to expect when we planned the dirty weekend, after the disappointment of cancelling April’s race. One of the delights was seeing so many families taking part and many completing multiple races. Between them took part in all the races across the weekend. Well done.
