It's been a big week for Team Shmick with Mick and the boys monster result at Badwater. Tonight we celebrated our recent Oxfam Trailwalker run and were very pleased to be the highest fundraiser in our category. Super special thanks to Melanie Canfell, our super-crew and to all the organisers and vollies at Oxfam. Finally, a huge thank to everyone who supported us and donated to the Oxfam fundraiser, it's a great cause and your generosity goes a long way to help those folk in need. ... See MoreSee Less

Craig R SmithAbsolutely incredible. That he could back up lasts years performance with this and throwing in that 48 hr performance 4 months ago..... Sounds like a bit of Fryer rubbing off on him.1 month ago · 3

We're on our way from Furnace Creek to Badwater for the start in an hour's time. Mick had a great sleep last night, and is primed for what is ahead, he told me earlier he has never felt better before a race.
Whatever happens, the rest of the team knows Mick will give this his all. He always does.

This will be the last Facebook update until the 100 Mile mark of the race as phone reception is non existent.
The photo was taken a few days ago on the Mt Whitney Portal Road, a few miles from the finish line; we hope to be back there very soon.
