I wanted to say a quick congratulations to all the runners who participated in the Perth Trail Series 50km Truth or Consequences & 25km Half Truth race this past Easter weekend Saturday. A special well done goes to those who completed their first Ultra-Marathon!
For those of you who aren't runners, a race longer than a 42km marathon such as this 50km race is classified as an ultra-marathon. Talking to the runners crossing the line, the course consisting of +/- 1680m elevation change was well deserving of the name.
I was there helping with free treatments to those involved. It was a fairly early start with a 6:20am setup and finishing up at 5:00pm. I helped out with rub-downs, soft-tissue work, adjustments, taping & advice. Overall I had a great time helping out.
Well done & I'll see you out on the trails ;)
P.S. If you are interested in trail running I highly recommend the Perth Trail Series runs (www.perthtrailseries.com). A massive amount of effort put into making these runs fun for trail runners of all abilities.
