Tourist Trot STaR 25ks

Started just outside Centennial Park near the horse gates, ran into the park and did half a lap and up and out via the Woollahra gates. From there it was down to Edgecliff and along Rushcutters Bay up and over the Kings Cross tunnel to William St. That hill seems a lot steeper from that side than City 2 Surf.

Then it was into the city past St Marys Cathedral and down to the bridge via Kent St. Over the bridge to Milsons Point where I decided to do the short cut and come straight back over the bridge on my own. Then it was through the Rocks via Argyle Cut and past the MCA, Circular Quay, Opera House, Botanical Gardens where I sang a few Arias for the opera fans.

After that it was past Harrys where I stopped in for a pie floater. From there it was past the Naval yards and up the hill to Kings Cross(stinking of stale beer as per usual), through Paddington and past the SFS and SCG to the finish. All up 25.3ks in 2:00:35. Average pace of 4:45 per klm. Had to do a loop of Robertson Rd to make up the two hours as I was a bit short at the end.

P.S Kanser and Timmy were spied scurrying past the group at the finish. Seems they were afraid of the pace of Skippy Heyden, Fats and JB. Very soft boys.

Good taper run for the 50k Paul. I remember the 'Tourist Trot' - one of the original STaR runs.
