Today I finish the epic JMC 38km! This Wildrunner event was my longest race yet and it is part of the Mountain Challenge Series. We were blessed with amazing weather today and the scenery was truly impressive. Luckily I've done all these single tracks before, so I was prepared for the brutal technicality of the down-hills above Kurktrekker and down from Check Point 2. I'll let the photos speak for themselves... epic epic epic! ;)

Before the race - sorry Mia, terrible photo of my daughter
