Event: Two Bays Trail Run 2017
Date: Sunday the 15th January 2017
Location: Dromana to Cape Schanck
Organised by: Big Long Run
The Two Bays Trail Run is a 28km and 56km ultramarathon in Dromana, Melbourne. The 28km is from the Dromana Visitors Information Centre to Cape Schanck and the 56km from Cape Schanck to Dromana and back again.
Experience a wide variety of running surfaces, bushland and coastal views on this beautiful course that follows the Two Bays Walking Track through the biggest chunks of remnant native vegetation on the Peninsula.
Unlike 2016’s sub 3 hour plan, the plan for 2017 was to run with the Westerfoldian team for the first 21km (assuming a c.7km/h pace)and then come home faster after Boneo Road (STRAVA: Bushrangers bay run to the lighthouse segment) as a bit of a stretch out as training for UTA50. Not being sore was a big factor as I was driving to Adelaide in the afternoon.
In the end it was a fun trail run, with the weather being perfect for being out on the trails, a solid training run through to Borneo Road with a lift of pace for the final segment without any niggles. I was also a lot more prepared than last year and had my beer ready to open with the new bling 😉
Plenty of well deserved smiles at the finish – great job!
An awesome result for the Westerfoldians to come home with 6th place in the 28km Mixed Team category.
