Well done. This was a long race prep. for Aus Champs!
Yes that as well and for the boys.
Why were the courses such weird lengths?
(It sounds as though 9km would have been plenty for course 2, but even so, shouldn't both courses 1 and 3 have been comparatively longer?)
I tend to think this is the length longs need to be in Australia
Yeah I agree Krystal, was good fun. Haven't run a long distance in a while so was bit of a shock to the system. What length is our ultra long?
Also I'm coming to the qld champs weekend :)
I'm going to qld champs too! Yay
sounds like the opposite of our OY - 9k of red line running. would have needed to be 14 for Simeon to get near the winning time.
I feel like I've been bleating about lack of proper longs in Aus for as long as I've been running elites. it improved for a while when Hanny was running, but somehow organisers seem to scared to set courses longer than 10km for the women.
good to hear that we're going to get a decent field at Qld champs!
Admittedly, the way the NOL schedule turned out, there wasn't a proper long WOC trial race in Aust this year.
