Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
One last hurrah before the end of the year. Runners, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat along the trails of Squaxin Park.
Ultra Trail Cap Town’s Stuart McConnachie Race Director on Instagram:
“We are extremely saddened and concerned by what happened to Tom Evans and have reached out to him to offer our support and access to counselling. We were excited to have him race at this year’s RMB Ultra-trail Cape Town but respect his decision to return to the UK….”
Earlier this week Tom Evans was attacked at knifepoint while training along the route.
Not making light of this at all, this is an awfully shitty situation and I wish Tom Evans all the best in his recovery and wishing all the runners and the organizers of the race a safe and successful race.
This comes mere days after the announcement of the World Trail Majors, which includes Ultra-Trail Cape Town and who’s stated objective is to create a wish list of races that runners ‘must’ compete once in their lifetime. Oooof.
