Down to the Bay again with the start just below Leichhardt Oval on the bay run. Generally accepted as about 7ks depending on how you get up to the Iron Cove Bridge. This year we were told the length was 7.05ks. My Polar measured it as 7.03ks. So pretty spot on.
Met up with a few Striders before the race and we hastily put a team in. The team was Easy Tiger, Professor, Fake Plastic Trees and myself.
The start was pretty quick with a large start area then cramming into a small 5m wide space within 50m as we headed up and over Iron Cove Bridge and around the bays and back to the start again.
Just never got into a decent rythym at all and felt heavy in the legs with my breathing difficult due to the cold I picked up this week.
Finished in 28:46. Disappointing but entirely expected from me as I just have not had good rythym in my running since before Sutherland to Surf last week.
Aside from that the team entered as Sydney Striders came third, so we picked up a free Bay Run cap for our efforts.
A well organised community fun run for only $20 with a timing chip. They had 770 runners in total for both male and female. Their largest ever apparently.
