Manly Fun Run 10.62ks

A lovely morning for a run. 12 degrees and not much wind at all. The race started at North Steyne Surf Club and went along the beach to Shelley beach before going up hill through the carpark and up again to get onto Bower St which eventually goes downhill for about 300m.

We then went up through the Intnl Hotel school grounds on the grass before getting out onto Darley Rd to continue uphill through the Artillery base to the memorial at North Head. Turnaround and head back downhill which is always my favourite part.

Back down to the beach via Bower Lane and back along to the Surf Club. Officially the distance was 10.62ks. Suspect it was shorter but it is a weird distance so no problem.

Finished 14th in 42:38 out of 800 runners.

P.S Tom was nowhere to be seen but rumour has it that his wife and kids held up the family name in the 2k and streeted the field.

I thought about taking out the 2km but in the end decided it would be inappropriate. Notice that the winner of the 2km comes from good stock...
