Only 6 of us this morning on a very fine day, apparently some were claiming they could roll their ankles in the bush upsetting their GCM prep. Soft!
Started at Georges Heights oval and ran down to Balmoral beach and across to Chinamans beach and across the Spit bridge and up to Seaforth where we headed bush for the 1st time for a few ks.
From their it was up to Allambie and Warringah Aquatic centre and then down a secret bush track under a pipeline at the back of an oval. Heaps of ks in the bush before we ended up at Manly Dam.
Then it was a few ks of road through North Balgowlah, Balgowlah and Clontarf before the Spit bridge again. Then through the bush around Beauty Point and back onto the road through Mosman and down to Clifton Gardens.
Then it was down the hill and across the sand at Chowder Bay before going up through the bush to the finish at Georges Heights.
Hard work H4 on the Striders hill factor and 12ks of bush. Hard morning. Total was 28.52ks in 2:41:12. Average pace of 5:39 per klm. Beautiful views and the bush running was fantastic.
