Menai Challenge 2011 Prize Draw
The prize draw for the 2011 Menai Challenge took place at Summit to Sea on Sunday 12th Feb 2012; thank you to all those who came along. Though the Menai Challenge only came into being half way through the 2011 season, a total of 36 people posted a time with 62 different times being submitted. 2011 Results Here.
The Menai Challenge Cup is presented jointly to the fastest man and fastest woman over the long course in each year. For 2011 the cup was awarded to Ian Tordoff (Chester Canoe Club - 1:20.25) and Pascale Eichenmuller (01:39:01).
- ‘Furthest distance traveled’ award went to Dan Dooley who flew over from Chicago to take part!
- ‘Most relaxed run’ award went collectively to the folks from East of Scotland Universities Air Squadron who stopped for lunch half way through their run.
- ‘Ironman/woman’ award went jointly to Jim Wallis for his stoic effort into a Force 6 headwind and to Kate Duffus who completed the long course in both directions on the same day!
The sponsored prizes were awarded on a raffle basis – you didn’t have to paddle hard to get in the draw, you just had to complete the distance!
