Be water

“Be water…” Flow rather than run… Stride lightly over the top rather than in the valleys Breathe deep, relax and let go of your fear… …Andreas Waldhaus,  2 times Knee Knacker finisher Photo credit:  John Reynolds

All you can do

“Roots! Rocks! Moss! Trail shoes! Hemlocks! Packs! Cedars! Tattoos! Pain! Sweat! Smiles! Snorts! In the forest with Polk-a-dot shorts! Wear what you will. This day is for you. Embrace the work. It’s all you can do.” …Poem written by Tom Craik, 6 times Knee Knacker finisher Photo credit:  BJ Bruder

Remember to smile

“It does not matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop.” – Confucius. And always remember to smile and have lots of fun.   …Pargol Lakhan, 2017 Knee Knacker finisher. Photo credit: Herman Kwong
