"Over the 9 months of organising Civic2Surf, Harriet carried the committee, motivated us, and never backed down in the face of difficulty. On the weekend of the event, Harriet and I drove the support vehicle to meet each runner at the beginning and end of their leg to offer encouragement. I have genuinely never seen anyone as enthusiastic and excited as Harriet was that weekend! On that first day, we literally hadn't stopped - we'd eaten nothing but lollies all day. When we got to Bong Bong Racecourse, we were both so exhausted. In true Harriet fashion, Harriet walked through the door, last person in, a massive smile on her face, socialising, as bubbly as ever - I remember sitting down, eating my dinner, just thinking to myself, 'How does she do it?'.
Needless to say the weekend was a massive success. She touched and inspired so many people across the course of Civic2Surf."
