As organisers, it is always rewarding to receive positive feedback following an event so many thanks to those of you who emailed us! Here are some of the lovely messages received:
"Thank you so much for all that you and your team managed to do to make the Splash and Dash such a huge success today. Both my daughter and I took part and thoroughly enjoyed the sense of fun, craziness, bravado and generally braving the elements! A great way to start the new year! It was a great community event and brought a lot of people together in a very healthy way."
"Just wanted to thank you and all organisers for the great Splash & Dash (or just dash in my case). Having convinced myself I would be last again, it was wonderful to have a better run and I really enjoyed it. I know how much work these events take to put together so thank you very much - we really appreciated all your hard work."
"Congratulations to you for the biggest and best (yet!) Splash and Dash."
"Just to say a big thank you for organising today. We've organised 10Ks and cross country events before and know what goes into it so well done - what a fantastic day it was!"
"We all had a great time and it certainly banished some hangovers from the night before! It was really well organised especially considering that there wasn't an entry fee. Best of all, everybody was so friendly."
"Many thanks for a great event. We all enjoyed the day very much."
"What a great morning. We were completely hungover but it made us all wake up and I'm already planning my outfit for next year!"
"We had a houseful of relatives/guests from Northern Ireland and Australia (who all took part) and Sweden who spectated. Brought them to Cromarty Splash & Dash. A brilliant event with the right combination of family-friendly informality and good organisation. A day to be proud of being a Ross-shire citizen on the international stage. Thank you so much to all organisers."
"There was such a lovely atmosphere and it was so much fun. I know a huge amount of organisation goes into anything like this and it was a really wonderful start to the new year. We look forward to the next one!"
"Great event, well organised as shown by the amount of visitors and locals who take part and spectate which has tripled as the years go by. Well done to all that give up their New Year's Day to make this annual event possible."
"Well done you guys again for an amazing event. We really enjoyed running the Mini Dash. Looking forward to 2013 and would like to offer our support and assistance if required."
