What an incredible experience to have run and finished this race. Harder, steeper, longer and more challenging than I ever imagined. Great event staff, participants and volunteers. Thank you Dragon's Back, I'm a very proud (and exhausted) slayer!

Kudos to the volunteers who were always smiling and helping you out at the support point and camp site, the media team, chefs, medics, and the RD
