Uncle JiM:
The official map printed on the back of our race numbers show that we use the dam wall

Yeah well, the official map on the website says that the first drinks station is at 7.5km, when today it was at 8km, so maybe they did intend the extra 4-500m around the dam. Certainly the run used to be only 27.4km when we crossed on the dam wall.

If they wanted to get the 28, to be a true 28, why not make the 56, a true 56

Great run Jenny. I reckon whether you do it again or not shouldn't depend on your time, just if you enjoy it!

It's more about pace, because being slower at the start means getting caught in more unenjoyable bottlenecks, and then taking longer still...I really wish that Sea to Summit was still on the SARRC calendar though :(

you beat my time from last year: well done!

Well done Jenny! Such a beautiful (and tough!) run, I definitely want to get down there and do it again sometime soon

Congratulations Jenny - you are amazing... no matter what the time.

It's amusing that the comedian who moved the tapes bothered to relocate them onto another trail that led back to the proper course. My experience of these types of people is that they either lead the course to nowhere or else just toss the tapes into the bush. You know, because it's funny.
