A bit late to the start so spent the 1st k catching up with Cam Arnold. We eventually caught up with the main pack after cutting a bit off in Abbotsford.
We started in Drummoyne and went around the waters edge of drummoyne and underneath the Gladesville bridge, through Russell Lea, Chiswick, Abbotsford, Wareemba, Canada Bay which is where I fell off the back of the 6:20 group and saw occassional glimpses of them in the distance.
After that I ran out to Cabarita and did the loop of the park and back through Concord and around the golf club. Back through Canada Bay, Five Dock and on to Rodd Point to join the bay run. I went around the long way as you are supposed to and across Iron Cove bridge to the finish at Brett Park.
Total was 31.5ks in 2:25:15. Average pace of 4:36 per klm. Going on my records this would be the fastest I have run this STAR. Most are usually 4:40-4:45 per k for me. Certainly is a hard run when I am not fit enough.
The 6:20 group had Ray Wareham, David Tonge, Fats, Cam Arnold and Uncle Dave running. No wonder I couldn't keep up.
