In short:
Enjoyable steady training run for Two Oceans marathon in a month! Lovely trail course, excellent organisation from Trail Outlaws. Love the peace and quiet of running around there at night!

In full:
Felt comfortable and strong whole way round - paced it to effort levels as if had another 9 miles to do ready for Two Oceans 35 miler. Walked all the hills, conserved energy as finished strong gaining on people. Happy to still take 8th female from 154 though wish I had another mile as 5th - 7th place were only 1-2 mins ahead!

In short:
Almost perfect weather with a beautiful sunset over the lake. Improved pacing this year resulting in an improved time, than in 2016, and feeling stronger at the finish. 2nd V60, 108 place overall and 93rd Male. Solid training run for Two Oceans in 4 weeks time and for Comrades in June

In full:
Love this place, beautiful Lake and forest paths, no rain this year, a gentle breeze, undulating course around the Lake using mainly well maintained paths, friendly organisation, cool medal and sensible food; Tailwind worked well as ever and good to be introduced to ActiveRoot Ginger refreshing drink at the last water station.
