Dee Why Dash STaR 30.1ks

An end to all the bush runs until just before Sydney Marathon. But no end to the relentless hills. Another H4 STaR on the Striders hill list this morning had us starting at Dee Why Surf Club and then running uphill and down a few until we reached the Oxford Falls valley. From there it was up to Belrose, down past Warringah Aquatic Centre, through Allambie heights, then downhill to North Manly.
Then ran along to Queenscliff and turned and took the scenic and hilly route back to Dee Why via Harbord, Freshwater, Curlie beaches and into Dee Why.
Hard work running with 2:45 marathon man John Binfield plus Jo Cowan as well. Speed was pretty quick for most of the run.

Total was 30.1ks in 2:23.19. Average pace of 4:45 per klm. Not bad for a very hilly STaR.

Last time I could keep up with Jo was down the LCP in the '80s!
