Mission Mt Somers 2016 Post race newsletter

Tineka Johnstone - Thursday, November 17, 2016
Hi Mission Mt Somers entrant, 

Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to enter Mission Mt Somers. We were overwhelmed with the support and the increase in numbers means Enduranz Events' name is getting out there, providing more opportunity to develop more events. Results can be found here and the video made by Ashburton TV can be viewed here

On Saturday 29th October it was one extreme to another with the weather and we definitely had four seasons in one day. Everyone seemed to enjoy running in the snow and I guess it makes for some interesting stories. If you have any feedback or stories (good and bad) let us know by replying to this email. 

If you haven't already, please like our Facebook page Enduranz Events, as this is where we are posting stories, links to photos and other useful bit of information. 

 Next years Mission Mt Somers will be on Saturday 28 October 2017 - so lock this into your diaries now! 

SAY YES TO ADVENTURE MAGAZINE Say Yes to Adventure is a beautifully-designed print and digital magazine that explores the stories of passionate people and the motivations behind their inspirational adventures. Featuring a broad range of subject matter focused on exploration, creativity, adventure and discovery, we aim to be a source of inspiration for those who seek an active and exciting lifestyle. Hollie Woodhouse ran the marathon (when she wasn't taking photos). Thanks to Hollie we have some awesome shots of Mission Mt Somers.
