Mosman Reversed STaR 30ks

Only 8 of us this morning including Jo, Melissa, Mark, Pete Truscott and Mr Lindop. No maps this morning but I have done the course plenty of times and it was marked well.
Started at Balmoral Beach and ran through Chinamans beach to the Spit, across to Clontarf and then back across the Spit again.

Then it was through Beauty Point and along the water to Primrose Park, up the hill to Cammeray and across to North Sydney Oval before the cricketers spoilt it. Then across the Warringah freeway to Neutral Bay.

Then along the harbour past Kurraba Point, around Cremorne point, Mosman Bay, Taronga Zoo, Bradleys Head, Taylors Bay, Chowder Head and across Chowder bay. Then up the hill to Georges Heights and back down to the harbour to run along Balmoral Beach to the finish.

Total was 30.05ks in 2:41:58. Average pace of 5:23 per klm. H5 and Bush 10 on the Striders STaR scale certainly felt like it this morning. Conditions were pretty heavy as well. 20 degrees and 92% humidity for most of the run. Lucky I'm not in Boston running in the snow. brrrrr.

P.S Tim may not be able to run a 45 min 10k but his long runs are very solid.

That's a nice scenic one. The hill training will come in handy at Boston.
