Ultra Runners


Tribute to George Dayantis (1962-2011) (Read 209 times)


    George Dayantis, Greek national holder at 50km, and our close running friend was due to run in the Boddington 50km on 26th June.


    In his stead, Juliet and I (between us!) plan to run the 50km as a tribute to George's brilliant but short running career (only 3 years at ultra distance!).  The event is 6 days before we get married, and so this will be instead of either a hen or stag event. (btw - if anyone wants to support us by buggying our 7-month baby, Gabrielle, while we race, offers will be graciously considered!)


    At Carole's request, in support of CRY (Cardiac Risk for the Young) instead of flowers, I have set up a page where tributes may be added (and donations hidden if preferred) on www.justgiving.com/George-Dayantis-tribute


    To repeat what was posted under "a sad loss", Carole Dayantis has passed on the funeral arrangement details...
