How miserable! Glad they aren’t causing more discomfort.

I did the same thing - disturbed a nest during a race and got multiple bites - a year or two ago. It was not a fun few days!

Yeah, definitely not a comfortable couple days! Just started to feel better today.

I had the same thing happen in Expedition Alaska - as with Friday, I was walking behind a teammate who accidentally kicked up a nest, and I got the swarm. That time it was only a handful of stings and it was on day 5 of the race, so I wasn't feeling much of anything by then :)

Oh that stinks! I had a similar experience a few years ago and realized how thankful I was to not have an allergic reaction in the middle of nowhere.
