The Wonderland Run Grampians is a 2km and 8km Saturday afternoon run, followed by 20km, 36km and 63.5km runs on Sunday morning, based at Halls Gap in Victoria. Absolute freaking intensity! You are engulfed by a whole different world. You are IN the landscape. It will chew you up and spit you out and you will love it. All events based from Halls Gap in the mighty Grampians, starting from School Rd. Due to the arduous nature of the runs, runners need to qualify by having run in other events.
Running with Liam on his first Wonderland, the plan was to start off very conservatively in wave 2 or 3 (we were wave 3) and stay in the congo line for the climb to the Pinacle, to flow across to the descent where we would bomb the descent, and then finish solidly. The goal time was about 3 hours.
Mission accomplished! 2h 50min
