I recorded a time of 4:03.12 carrying Heidi. We were placed last. For the first attempt, it was great to have finished the course. It was tough to carry cover 60kg and run(walk) 253m. I will practice harder and hopefully next year I will perform much better.

I think the style of carrying also contributed to higher time recorded. Piggyback style is not recommended. In my opinion, the Estonian style is the best and it’s safe even though it might be uncomfortable.
