Edgecliff Excursion STaR 28ks

The former Vaucluse Variation STaR that moved from Vaucluse and then Rose Bay to now start at Edgecliff instead.
Basically we run through Edgecliff, Woollahra, Bondi, Waverley, Bronte, Glamarama passing the Sculpture by the sea exhibition along the coastal walk. It was packed with people very early this morning.
Then Bondi Beach, North Bondi, Dover Heaights, Rose Bay North, Diamond Bay, Watsons Bay turning at HMAS Watson to go back through Vaucluse, Rose Bay, Double Bay and back to Edgecliff to the finish.

Only two of us did the full course. CR Sloth and myself.
Total was 28.6ks with a dirty uphill finish in 2:26.20. Average pace of 5:06 per klm. Must have been all those stairs in this course plus the Hills.
Temp was 19 degrees and 84% humidity for most of the run. Spring in Sydney.

Interesting run. They didn't have it in the old days. I remember something called (I think) the Bondi Lifesaver.

Nice going with the 2k TT. I remember a 2000 TT before one of my 3000s and kept the same pace, so sub-10:30 is looking good next weekend.
