2017/18 Spirit of the Series – Mandy Williams
For the first time in FoxTrail history we have awarded a “Spirit of the Series” award. This award represents someone who embodies FoxTrails values and brings about a sense of community and empowerment to the series whilst pushing them self to the limit in order to succeed at their own goals.
We were delighted to announce Many Williams as FoxTrail Scotland’s “Spirit of the Series 2017/18”! Mandy joined the FoxTrail events last year and ran in the 5k series, this year she undertook a HUGE challenge to run in the full series and to run every single race… yes windy and rainy half marathon included!
Mandy not only succeeded in this personal challenge but she has also supported and encouraged other runners along the way, both during the races and otherwise! The Harvest Moon Half Marathon was the largest challenge in the series and those of you who ran it will know how brutal and exposed the conditions can be, so when we saw Mandy and a gang of runners running at the back of the pack, encouraging and supporting each other we were delighted knowing they would get each other through it!
A true embodiment of what FoxTrail is about, community, support, hard work and personal rewards. We want people to get out and enjoy the stunning countryside East Lothian has to offer, and if you’re like Mandy… you’ll get the trail running bug!
Well done Mandy!!
