Finishing some half Ironman distance races and one full IM in 2013, this one was the most challenging one. But: cruising on my bike on Saturday, spending time at Chiddingstone, having a chat with the volunteers en route, good food at the pubs and the tea house, a perfect host at my accommodation and a well organised event over two days encouraged me to finish the Gauntlet. Moreover, the smiles of the competing kids are something I will never forget! The goosebumps on the finish line was THE highlight out of my races in 2014! WELL DONE ALL OF YOU –let me again congratulate you for putting something together in a wonderful countryside within one of the most iconic settings I’ve ever seen.
