22 runners took advantage of the glorious weather and pitched up at Rhodes Mem. A bit of a lung-busting climb to the turnstile just below Blockhouse and then glorious single track through the forest, over streams, along boardwalks, past waterfalls accompanied by all the foresty clichés – birdsong, dappled sunlight through the trees.
The Recovery group turned back a little earlier than Skeleton Gorge and covered 11kms in a two and half hours and the Main Group ran 13.6kms in 3 hours. A splinter group decided to avoid the big climbs on the way back and came via Newlands forest, they covered 13.9kms and were back before Recovery.
Thank you to Richard for leading and Gaeleen for sweeping and taking photos. A beautiful forest run.
