Hi guys. Great idea.
I may be able to help out a bit with logistics / support crew etc the week you have planned. I live on the Central Coast and spend quite a bit of time running on the GNW north of the river including the Watagans etc. I dont think I will be in a position to join you as I will probably be flying back from Canada only a day or so before you start. However, I plan to be resting up in Gosford the week of your run so should be able to help out.
The Patonga to Girrakool section is hard to get to but is one of the favourites amongst those of us that run the GNW so you should consider fitting it in with some support.
If you need detailed trail notes on the GNW section Patonga to Teralba (160 km) go to the GNW100's website. I can also help you out with what I know about the tricky bits, although its not very difficult for a bunch of orienteers ....

Hi Neil, just saw this.
Yeah our dates aren't set yet, it's still a bit of a pipedream idea...

We've all run the patonga-girankool section before, so won't be too upset to miss that bit if we need to, but i personally haven't done north of girankool, so thats when the real fun begins!
