Firstly, apologies for the delay in getting this message out to you. There have been a lot of loose ends to tie up post marathon and you may have heard about the baggage problems we had at the finish area, repatriating lost bags to their respective owners has been a priority for us over the last two weeks.
On behalf of Xtra Mile Events I would like to say a huge thank you to all the volunteers from A&T Road Runners that helped at the Marathon. The horrendous weather made it a hard day for everyone and we are very grateful for your groups help. We have received really positive feedback from runners about how well organised and supportive the Aid stations around the course were.
Please can you pass my thanks on to the group. The conditions were extreme and all the A&T Road Runners volunteers went above and beyond the call!
We will be holding a debrief meeting next week and would appreciate any feedback your group may have from the event. As with any first year event there were some teething problems with this year’s event and any feedback received will be discussed fully in the event debrief.
The marathon will be taking place again next year and it would be great if your group can operate an Aid Station again.
