As we return to ‘normal’ life today it would be remiss of me not to take some time to send a quick note regarding our experience over the last five days. I made the decision to sign up for Australian Outback Marathon last August and after some procrastination and in decision, I was lucky to have a friend decide to come along on the journey who was super organised and took hold of the booking process. While I had imagined it would be an amazing adventure nothing quite prepared me for what I would gain from the experience and a lot of this comes down to the amazing organisation of the event and your team on the ground. A particular thanks to our amazing hotel liaison! We were made to feel welcome from the outset at the airport and the delivery of the race packs at the hotel, especially since we were the only two to arrive at our hotel on that flight and were a day early! The accommodation was more than adequate, the meals were fantastic and even catered for a fussy eater, the extra activities were great and another opportunity to meet others. The race briefing and opening ceremony while serving an important purpose of the pre race preparation, created a general excitement among the group. The general friendliness and engagement with the other competitors encapsulated the whole experience. We certainly met some amazing people on the way including the locals. While everyone has their own motivation and reason for completing the race, I hope they all take from it as much as we did! Thanks again and who knows we may be back one day!
