The third and final stage was a 100km section from Lugo to Santiago de Compostela, and relatively flat with ONLY 2000m of elevation gain along the way.
Whilst the elevation may have been reduced, the scenery certainly was not. The team passed many small villages trodden by endless numbers of Pilgrims, before the tarmac gave way to the forest and mountain terrain and the peaceful woodland paths where we shared the final kilometres of the journey with those taking a more sedate pace.
As the team crossed the line at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, it was clear to everyone just how special the past few days had been and what a momentous experience we had shared; our second place finish the icing on the cake.
As we look towards 2022 and continue to build our Chance Run Team, the pillars of camaraderie, fun and performance will remain central as we run the land and explore the world around us.
