Matt somehow found time to train for the Subaru Ironman Canada while writing up his PhD thesis, and after swimming 3.8 km, cycling 180 km and running a marathon in 12 hours and change, ran over the line with a smile on his face - great effort Matt!

Mike, Danielle and Scott at a border obelisk on 0 Avenue (Warning: be prepared to be told off by a busybody if you reenact this photo...)

Mike and Greg (group-member-for-the-day), on the way back from the IDW, enjoying the legroom in the van
