Chatswood Chase STaR 30ks

Started at Lane Cove National Park at the start of the Striders 10k race point. Small crowd with only Mark F, Mark S, Dave C, Pete Truscott, Bruce and Ray W running this morning. David Tonge caught us from the 6:30am start at about 20k and Dave C went with him.

We run the whole way along the 10k course minus the side trip up Scribblies to the Ryde Rd gates, then we go through Macquarie Park, Lane Cove West, Artarmon on the run up to the Great Northern Hotel on the pacific Hwy.
Then through Chatswood and Roseville with some good rolling hills up to Gordon. Then we go back south past Gordon golf club and into the bush in Lane Cove national park. A bit muddy but nothing too bad from the showers last night. Then we run past West Lindfield and down back into the national park across the weir to the finish.

Total was 30.2ks in 2:30.24. Average pace of 4:58 per klm. Not too bad with the H3 Striders hill rating. Probably could be H4 as there are a lot of them.

That was a good one. Ran it quite a few times in the old days - love the bush track sections.
