Two Bays Trail Run 2020
The plan was to pace Tracy to a sub 4 hour, without irritating the injured ankle, and for me to start playing with the gear load for Run Larapinta later this year – pacing not racing.
I used the 12l Salomon pack, 4 full soft bottles and 2 empty – the chest pockets didn’t work for me with the full bottles. I’ll need to update my ‘large’ pack for Run Larapinta.
I had two dry bags in the large kidney pockets, the same method I used at Mount Buller Skyrun – this worked well.
I carried the GoPro and the iPhone – the GoPro really just gets in the way, better off getting the video and photos from the iPhone.

New take-aways for Two Bays;
* Get your jump shots in early
* I still can’t hold back on a fun descent
* Hawaiian shirts chafe
* it’s difficult to run side by side on single track, even for photo
Net Time = 3:48:24 = Mission accomplished!
