THE OX - Thank You!!!

The Ox was for the most part a great success not to be out done by rain, wind,mud, flooding and people vandalising the signage on the Ultra (sorry to the guys who got lost) we even got the distance right on the Marathon...a first for us.
Glad everyone liked the medals and the Tshirts.
Stats 1.6 tonnes of water 48 litres of coke (rots your teeth ya now) 2 kg of jelly babies and 200 mini scotch eggs!
In the last week Foo and BB did 322 miles off road signing it. We will have hundreds of photos on Flickr here https://www.flickr.com/groups/ox_races2014/
We will be back next year but there will be changes.
The start and finish and camping will be down near the Golf Club we will arrange for food in the evening for campers and we will sort out the issues with the signage.
Look out for Larmer Tree which opens soon and Night Mole races 10k night races down in Darzzet.
We are going to sit down and have beer and try and catch up on our sleep.
Once again thanks to all the volunteers and helpers you were all superb pulling out the stops when crisis struck thanks to you all.

Andy.

Our farmer in the buff will return with new ideas to entertain you.

BTW The sheep that looked a bit poorly at 2 miles. Shes fine shes just a bit old and cranky and cant make it up hills very well (sounds familiar) when she sees people she cant run off so quick so she just lies down and waits for you to go past apart from that shes fit and well.
There will be a change of route we dont want the dramas of this year with.
The new marathon route will not lose its essential hillyness or beauty, in fact you will be amazed at the places we can find you to run...up.
We are very lucky we have many farmers and landowners that like what we are doing and have been very generous and let you run on private land. We would like to thank them all.
