Well and truly dashed. The course starts at DY surf club and goes up hill(of course) to Frenchs Forest and then down into the valley at Oxford Falls. We then climb out of the valley to Belrose where the run turns and heads to Allambie Heights. From there we ran downhill to Queenscliff beach. Out over the hill past freshwater beach and the Harbord Diggers. Then it is a 3k run home over another big hill about a k before the finish.
Started at 6:10 and ran with O Runner, Horrie, Kevin Tiller Coaster and a few others.
It was very humid and we had light sprinklings of rain during the run.
When we ran into the valley at Oxford Falls we had misty rain and fog on the hills up ahead.
As well as horses in the paddocks and Lyre birds in the bush. Very nice.
When we hit the 20k mark we had done that in 1hr 42mins according to Horrie.
Horrie had a bit of a bad patch just after this and ending up walking/jogging back to the start.
Wanted me to keep going ahead so I did and eventually caught up to O Runner at Queenscliff surf club. That was also when the 6:20 group saw me about the 24k mark.
I did manage to run off before they caught me, and only had Springer catch me at the top of the last hill.
Included Action, Uncle Dave and Springer and others.
I ended up finishing in 2hrs 31mins. Just over 5min ks. Which is very good on this hilly course.
I think Mister G needs to make up his own STaR out Burwood way.
I didn't find the hills too bad today. They are one long hill for a 1k an then nothing for another 5ks. Unlike Cherrybrook where every 2ks you went up a short hill.
