Brings back old memories- used to live on Regency Dr!
Any chance of seeing the map?

TBT is better, although it has the adjacent map as well. My (not very good) route is on the medium course.

Great - thx to you both!

Aren't you going to thank me for drawing it :-) I even drew the adjacent map.

Actually I'm unhappy with the result and even more unhappy that I didn't fix it between the first (2012) and second (2016) uses. It's far too easy to fall into the trap of trying to get from Regency Drive into the parks for those unfamiliar with the area (which is most people) although when I set the course there in 2012, I made it clear in the briefing that it wasn't possible to do so (Tash didn't mention it in her briefing on the weekend). I've redrawn it now with bridges at the underpasses so hopefully this won't keep happening.

tRicky thank you and "bisou, bisou" :-)
The underpasses were one of things that "sold" Crestwood to my parents back then!
Also back in 1975 most of the surrounding area, through which I used to run, was classic Perth sandy soil and melaleuca groves- just as Bentley was mostly pine plantations. How things have changed.

I should have remembered that you can't get into the park from the bridges, but the last event was 4 years ago and I'm 70 now!

I do have long term memory though - I used to be able to do a 2 hour run from Murdoch Uni in the Somerville pine plantation without using the same track twice.
