The Bad Thing 50k. Very fun point-to-point racecourse between Goderich and Auburn following the Maitland Trail. Ran with Bender for the first 35k - his family owns property along the trail, so he has been running this route for years. Very interesting to get a guided tour as we made our way through, which made the first few hours fly by in a snap. Keeping one's mind occupied wasn't an issue though - this race features a tremendous amount of variety. What a difference between this and the multi-lap courses that we're so conditioned to with Ontario ultras. Lots of technical terrain which made for a pretty slow pace - can't imagine that my 'course record' will hold for very long! Great day with lots of strong representation from the AR community. This one will be a regular on my calendar in the years to come.

Wilderness Traverse with Mrs Gally, Tom M and Bender. Bit of a line-up change this year due to Gally's "retirement" (he'll be back), but a very solid team all the same. A nav bobble on CP3 cost us a considerable amount of time off the start, but we held a steady pace throughout and worked really well as a group. Bender suffered under the spell of some pretty nasty sleepmonsters in the final hours, and missing the road option that most other teams took to avoid a significant stretch of powerline torture really took its toll, but we held it together like a team that's raced together for years. My personal victory was not experiencing any stomach issues for the first time in...well, longer than I can remember!

Great fun, beautiful course, and getting to see Browner during the last stretch was the icing on the cake. Thanks so much Bob and Bash!
